Fried Anchovies With Onions And Chili

These Fried Anchovies With Onions And Chili are a popular Malaysian bar snack. It's also served as an appetizer or side dish at most home. The anchovies should remain crispy, slightly salty, sour, spicy and the onions are lightly softened without the raw taste. 


How To Make Fried Crispy Anchovies

There are a wide variety of ways to serve fried crispy anchovies. One of the most well known uses for it would be serving it along with Nasi Lemak, a popular dish in Malaysia. Other examples of how it can be used include, pounding them finely to add into rice porridge, as a topping for varieties of noodles, flavouring for many sambal dishes, and are great for making snacks.
