Mathi nellikka varattiyath -Chala curry in onakka nellikka

It sounds different that sardine means chala or mathi with gooseberry (nellikka).In many T.V shows I have seen the preparation of chala in nellikka.At that time i thought that it was really not a good combination.Yesterday my mother in law cooked it frankly speaking i didnt like the taste of it .But everyone else except my husband enjoyed it well.Some where else i have read that it is a traditional muslim recipe.

Ingredients needed to make mathi nellikka varattiyath

1.Mathi or chala - 5 no
2.Dried gooseberry - 4 to 6 no
3.Pepper corns - 2 tsp4.Garlic - 10 no
