Dry Fish Chutney/Onakkameen Chammanthi

One of the most preferred chutneys with rice gruel! I find it too tasty that cannot resist having it before serving!

  1. Dried fish- 1/2 cup
  2. Coconut,grated- 1/2 cup
  3. Dried Red chillies-3
  4. Onion- 1/4, sliced
  5. Salt- 1 teaspoon(Only if fish is unsalted)
  6. Curry leaves- 5-6
  7. Oil- to fry fishes

  1. Clean with water very well, the dry fish to remove any extra salt,if unsalted clean just once.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry the dry fishes till crispy, remove from fire and allow to cool
  3. Grind together fish,coconut,onion,dried red chilly,curry leaves, salt(if unsalted fish is used) to a fine paste(add small quantity of water if required to accelerate grinding)
  4. Serve with rice gruel/dosa

Enjoy the yummy yummy meen chammanthi.
