Unakka Meen Chathachathu !! (Dry Fish in a simple shallot-chilly roast)

This is a simple preparation with dry fish.I make this often when I feel homesick.One thing I can assure you. This is  a perfect accompaniment with Kanji/rice gruel or rice.
250 gm dry fish
1/2 cup shallots
5 dry chillies
2 sprig curry leaves
3-4 tsp coconut oil
salt (if needed)
Put the dry fish in cold water to get rid of excess salt.It may take half to 1 hour.
Crush the dry chillies,shallots and curry leaves.
Heat oil in a skillet and fry the cleaned dry fish.Shift it to kitchen towel and remove the excess oil.
Crush this fish into tiny pieces and Keep.
Heat oil again in the same skillet and roast the crushed dry chillies-shallots-curry leaves till the shallots turn light brown.
Add the crushed dry fish and mix well till everything is blend well.Check the salt at this stage and can add if you want.
