Sardine Thoran

Sardine Thoran - Indian Spiced Sardines

Sardine Thoran

This stir-fry is my favorite way to eat sardines! The spices and coconut help mask the strong fishy flavor of sardines. Even if you’re not typically a fan of sardines, give this thoran a try. You can also use canned tuna in place of the sardines.
