Ikan Bilis with Potato Fry ( Nethili Karuvadu )

1/2 cup Ikan Bilis (Small dry fish)
1 Potato (cit into small bit size pieces)
2 onions (Finely Chopped)
3 Green chillies (cut into 1 inch thickness)
5 cloves of Garlic (peeled and finely sliced)
3 strands of curry leaves
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

  • Bring enough oil in wok to high heat and fry ikan bilis till it is golden brown and crispy. Drain and keep aside ikan bilis. Discard the used oil.
  • Heat the 2 tbsp oil in a wok and add potatoes with turmeric powder and salt. Cover the wok and cook till its 3/4 done.
  • Then add the garlic, onion, curry leaves and chillies. Stir fry for few mins.
  • Now add the fried ikan bilis and stir well to combine everything together.
  • Taste and season with more salt if needed. Make sure you add very little salt at the beginning because ikan bilis can be salty at times.
  • Serve it immediately with steaming hot rice and tomato rasam.
