Crispy-fried Anchovies topped with Sauteed Green Chillies

The adults in my home, especially mum, simply loves Crispy-fried Ikan Bilis topped with Sauteed Green Chillies! So, quoting Din, having this with Asam Pedas for breaking fast, made this the best meal ever!


  • 2 cups of anchovies, deep-fried till crispy
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil

Pounded Coarsely

  • 1 large onion
  • 10 shallots
  • 6 large green chillies
  • 10 green bird's eye chillies

  1. Deep-fry the anchovies, drain & place on a serving dish.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok.
  3. Sautee' all the pounded ingredients with the hot oil for about 2 minutes or until the onions become transparent & chillies slightly limp.
  4. Sprinkle with the salt.
  5. Toss everything around evenly.
  6. Place the cooled sauteed ingredients over the crispy anchovies.
  7. Perfect eaten with hot rice!
  8. Once the anchovies are topped with the onions & chillies, it won't keep crispy for long - so consume quickly!
