Portuguese Sardine in Olive Oil

This is a very easy recipe, I know on the web there are many complicated versions of the same.


1 dozen odd Sardine
4 large ripe tomatoes (They have to be juicy and ripe)
2 large onions
3 green chilles (Or less depending on your taste buds)
2 teaspoons of red chilli powder
1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste


This recipe needs a pressure cooker. 
Pour the oil into the pressure cooker, and saute the slit chillies into the oil
Add onions and again saute till the onion turns translucent 
Add tomatoes and saute till they turn nice and mushy. 

Add one coffee cup of water.. depending on the size of your pressure cooker and lay the fish on top of the saute...

Add salt to taste, shut the pressure cooker and cook for 2 whistles or till the fish bones turn mushy. (Depends on the size of the sardines) 

Serve over white rice and enjoy!
