Rava Fried Talle /Semolina Coated Sardine Fry

Simple and tasty Rava coated Sardine fry crispy and crunchy. Sardines also called as Talle locally in Goa. Talle also used in preparations of Ambotik and other curries but talle or sardines taste yum when rava fried. 
The only twist i have done is that i have added crushed pepper corns to the sardines while marinating also added pepper crushed in the semolina and then coated the sardines,due to which the sardines will have extra spice with tangy flavour of lemons.
