Anchovies are called by various names in Cochin, including Natholi, Kozhuva, and Pooroava. They have a strong flavour and a wet texture.
Loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, calcium, and minerals, they can be prepared as steamed, fried, or grilled whole anchovies. They blend nicely in both dry and curry-based recipes. Here are some recipes you could try out:
- Kerala Netholi Meen Fry
- Anchovy Fry / Netholi Niravu
- North Malabar Kerala-style Crispy and Spicy
- Netholi Thoran
- Kallushaap Style Podimeen Fry (Kozhuva)
