Manglorean Sardine Gravy

Sardines are my favorite specie of fish which I like very much especially the can packed ones soaked in tomato puree or some other kind of spicy sauces.I was kind of bored preparing the same type of gravy and wanted to try something new with these caned sardines. found this recipe while searching the net. I have used the tin sardine and drained out the sauce. The gravy was really delicious and spicy.
