How to Make Fish sauce

  • Clean, wash and cut the fish into 4 cm x 2 cm x 1 cm pieces. Rub with half teaspoon salt and keep aside.
  • Fry onion in ghee until light brown. Add ground spices, green chillies and coriander leaves with the gram or rice flour. 
  •  Mix well. Add remaining salt. Fry for 2-3 min.
  • Pour the measured amount of water and bring to boil. Add fish slices into it slowly and cook on a very slow fire until the fish is soft and has absorbed the masala flavour.
  • Beat up the eggs with sugar and vinegar and pour over the curry.
  •  Now care should be taken not to boil the curry as otherwise the eggs will curdle. Mix by rotating the vessel.
  • Remove from fire when the gravy is thick and the eggs cooked.
