How to make Dried Fish Chutney? Given below are the ingredients and method of preparation of this yummy Chutney.

Soak the dried fish in water for half an hour. After that wash the fish and dry the fish off water. Now heat around 4 tsp Oil in a Kadai and fry these fish till they get a golden brown color. Once done, remove the fish from the oil and keep aside. Now add rest of the ingredients in the oil and fry them till the coconut becomes golden brown in color. If necessary you may add a little more oil for frying. Remove the ingredients from fire and allow cooling. Grind the fried dried fish and the other ingredients and grind it to a coarse powder.
