Nethili Varuval


500gm Lake smelt/ Anchovy (Nethili) fish
1 tsp Turmeric Powder, divided
1 tsp Red Chili powder
1/2 tsp Onion powder (optional for flavoring) or Onion paste
1/2 tsp Pepper powder
1/2 cup Corn Flour
1/4 cup Tamarind pulp
1 tsp Rock Salt

Mix fish in the masala mixture and set aside for 30 minutes
Heat oil for frying
Add corn flour to the marinated fish and mix well
