    Oh ok. But I still think u can try the first one, NOT the second one.

    Also this is one recipe I found for you. Here since u already have sardines in tomato, may be u can reduce the tomate amount in the following recipe.
    hope this helps.
    ============================== ============================== ================
    Nethiyl Fish,
    Onions - finely sliced;
    Green Chillies - slit lengthwise;
    a Sprig of Curry leaves;
    Tomatoes; (reduce them sine u already have that in ur fish)
    Salt to taste;
    Vinegar little;
    Green Mango;
    Turmeric Powder; Oil.
    Green Chillies for grinding;
    Green Corriander leaves;
    Grind Coconut & keep separately.
    Grind to a smooth Paste & Keep: Ginger/Garlic/Coriander leaves

    (1) Slice Onions & fry to a pinkish colour, add the slit green chillies & curry leaves & continue to fry for a minute
    (2) Add the ground green masala & Turmeric Pwd, fy on low heat till raw smell goes, add the chopped tomatoes & fry till soft
    (3) Add the Coconut paste mix well & fry for 2 mins on low flame - till oil comes to the surface- add required quantity of water
    (4) Add the Mango pieces, salt - cover & let it bubble nicely - when the Curry has reached its thickness add the Nethiyle Fish - lift the vessel & shake it to mix do not use a spoon as this will break up the fish - cover & cook until a good smell comes -
    (5) Remove add vinegar & serve the Curry.

    Note: You could mix the Curry Raw also -

    (1) just place all the sliced & ground Masala & Ingredients (except the Fish) in a vessel with the required quantity of water & letting it bubble nicely till the raw smell goes & the grave has reached its thickness
    (2) Now add the fish, shake the vessel over & cook till the fish is done remove add vinegar & serve.

    I would like to add a simple FISH FRY RECIPE
    Cat fish(with mullu) – ½ kg
    Fish fry masala - 3 tbsp
    Lemon extract - 1spoon
    Water - a little

    Method1.Mix water,lemon extract with fish fry masala and make it to a fine paste.
    2.Apply the masala over the fish and let it stand for 3 to 4 hrs

    Cooking Options:
    Fat free cookingPreheat the oven at 350 degree and place the fish pieces in an aluminium tray for 20 minutes then take the tray out and apply fat free(PAM) spray to all the fish pieces and allow it to bake for 5 to 10 minutes.
    If u would like to taste the fish crispy then broil for 1 to 2 minutes by flipping over the fish.
    Low fat cooking:
    In a tawa,add 4 tsp oil for ½ kg fish and fry till it gets brown
    Fat cooking
    Deep fry the fish till it gets crispy

    Note:1.This method is purely my idea and I have tried the first two options both has come out just great.Basically cat fish does not need more oil to cook so it tastes great without oil and with less oil.
    2.I suggest melam fish fry masala and sakthi fish fry masala because no need to add anything except the masala powder whereas all other masalas like shan,baadsha u need to spice up more by adding extra ingredients.
