yes, even small grocery shops, or you can pick it up yourself at super-markets. Better to get the bigger, round ones, they will be easier to handle and probably cheaper than the small, cut-like-squares ones which is used in home for puja.

Keep a couple of big camphor pieces together, and then build a 'castle' around them with the coal pieces, leaving small space to insert the lighted matchstick. So, the camphor will burn inside the 'shell' of coal pieces. Once these few pieces of coal are lit by the camphor, the other coal pieces can be heaped on them , and ignited using a blower.

My Favorite.

Sardines.
Ginger Garlic Paste.
Red Chilly powder.
Turmeric powder.
Ground Black Pepper.
Salt.

Paste the fish with the masala.
Let it sit for sometime and then fry it up.

LOVE IT.

This is one of the cheapest and tastiest fish available.

Only skilled fish eaters can eat it properly.

By the way, well cleaned and good that you got rid of the head.

Agreed.
That entire lot of 19 fishes cost me Rs 50 including scaling and head cutting () charges.

This is a highly underrated fish. Its very fish, has excellent nutrition values. Plus its small size means that it has not assimilated mercury like the larger King Fish etc.

The cleaning is courtesy my wife. She does a thorough job and I don't complain as long as I am not made to do it. Well sometimes I do end up cleaning the fish as well but its subject to a final check from my wife.

But if the fish is deep fried well, then its bones are not a problem. Though newbie fish eater may get intimidated by them.

If my friend see this picture, he would have drooooolled....

How about the pictures of the finished product and the 'burp' which followed?

Just a small question - do the ingredients make a sufficiently thick paste which can be smeared on the fish? Because, my wife adds a little rice flour (paste) to make the paste thicker and make it finished product crispy.

Yes, sometimes a little water (less than 2 teaspoons) maybe added.

The rice flour will give it a nice crunch. I will try that next time.

I am experimenting with Chinese food these days.

After several trials, I can now manage to make decent Gobi Manchurian dry and Egg Hakka Noodles.

Will post pics in the next trial.

Mention the Gobi Manchurian to any visitor from China and he will look blank! It is an Indian invention.

You are right.

I should have written psuedo-Chinese or Indianised-Chinese.
