I like Ayam brand sardine too. Wah, add so much ingredients, sure looks tasty

tigerfish said...

Yep! I learn similar from my Indian friend too. I use canned sardines (not in tomato sauce though). So I have to use fresh tomatoes to cook up a light curry from scratch. In fact, I just cooked it today again. I know it is DELICIOUS.

My favourite brand too. This dish looks nice and appetising with curry. Thanks for sharing~

Meldylocks and Her Three Bears said...

Wow, this is nice for a change from the usual canned sardine...I'll try this when my in-lawas are not around! (They have the very traditional Hokkien taste buds--couldn't stand the "indian" smell) Maybe I could even convert my hubby into liking sardines, coz he loves curries!

Cinnamon-Girl said...

I never had sardines - only anchovies! But my Grandpa sure loves them - used to eat them right out of the tin. I bet he would love this!

ICook4Fun said...

This dish remind me of home. I didn't have this in a long long time. My mom used to cook this for us and she used the same brand of sardin. I don't think we can find it here. The best we can get here is the Lido brand.

Mary said...

What a beautiful dish! I'll have to look for the sardines, but when I find them I will make this for sure. It really sounds interesting. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Bakeling said...

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

I tried this dish, it was delicious like the taste of the gravy from one of roti prata we usually visited in Tampines Century Square. My five year grand daughter loved it.

The curry looks great..only one thing missing to make it awesome and exactly like the home-cooked indian sardine curry..POTATOES...soft, melt in your mouth, curry infused potatoes..hmmmmm... :) thanks for sharing!!

Mary said...

This brings back memories of my childhood about 30 odd yrs ago...it used to be sardine curry in my house at month end before salary day but it's a delicious dish with rice and rasam(pepper soup).Yummy! Yes I agree-potatoes makes this dish even more special.

Balakrishna Saraswathy said...

Wow!!! my version of Indian style sardine curry..looks yummy.Well I' don't add ginger and use 1tbsp of tamarind juice..will taste just like Indian Fish Curry :)

Anonymous said...

Love this dish!! My dad's best dish and with potatoes and green chilies:)

take2 said...

I have never tried sardines before.I made this curry tonight.

I could not find sardines in tomato sauce so I used the ones I got here in hot sauce. Also instead of soy sauce I added tamarind sauce because I am Indian and that's what my South Indian boy friend prefers in his fish curry and before adding to the pan I pureed the tomato, onion, ginger and garlic. I also added madras curry in stead of fish curry powder because I did not have any on hand.

In spite of all the above differences it smells and tastes so good! Thanks for this recipe. Would love to send you a pic of my sardine fish curry.
