Roe Fry/Parinjil Varathathu

Fish Roe/ Egg is a delicacy in Kerala Cuisine and it is something I can never say No to... Diet or No Diet!!! Usually the eggs of large fish are considered tasty and with it, we make curries, omelette, ada and also deep fry it.
The eggs of fish like Mackarel is not very tasty and some people do not eat it but I dont think any sea food lover can ever say No to Sardine Roe. Wow, its simply outta the world and this is how we make it edible...

Sardine Roe: 1/4 kg
Pepper: 1 tbsp
Chilly Powder: 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder: a pinch
Salt: as required

Oil: for Shallow frying

Make a paste of the masala with a tablespoon water and marinate the Roe in it.
Heat oil (3 tbsp) and shallow fry the roe (preferably keep a lid while it is getting cooked)

When done, serve warm with rice or as an appetizer.
