Step 1

For preparing dry fish chutney, clean the fish and soak in water for 10 minutes. Then drain the water.

Step 2

Heat oil in a pan and fry the fish until all sides are golden brown. It need not get crispy.

Step 3

Take the fish out of the pan and keep aside.

Step 4

Once the fish is cool, smash it slightly with a fork.

Step 5

Take a mixer grinder, add the fried fish, shallots, grated coconut, ginger, green chillies, tamarind juice, curry leaves and salt.

Step 6

Give about 4-5 turns. By that time, it should have just ground enough (The chutney should not be smooth. It should be coarse).

Step 7

Gather the chutney from the mixer and form a soft ball.

Step 8

Dry fish chutney is ready. Serve fresh as a side dish with rice.

Step 9

1)While soaking dry fish, put a few bits of paper in the water. It will absorb the salt content of the fish.

Step 10

Also be very careful while adding salt in chutney as the fish is already very salty.
