Let’s taste it! Oops I dropped it 😛 Welcome to Panlasang Pinoy! We will cook for today is a simple dish good for breakfast You can make it as sandwich filling or eat it with rice. This is what we call “Tortang Sardinas”.
Here are the ingredients for our recipe: 2 small cans of sardines.This is sardines in tomato sauce. 2 eggs and we will also need chopped onions. minced garlic ground black pepper and salt. Aside from those ingredients, we also need onion chives, cornstarch and cooking oil. Here is the complete list of ingredients with measurements Are you ready? Come, lets start cooking! Preheat cooking oil in pan. first thing to do is saute the onion and garlic. upon waiting heating up the oil spread the oil across pan and warm it up. Now add the chopped onion. You can chop or slice into small pieces, either way is OK. saute in 30 seconds and then put in the garlic or our minced garlic. Saute until light brown. You will notice if the garlic turns brown, the onion is cooked simultaneously. just stir-fry so it will be evenly cook. Now, it’s ready! I will trnasfer this in a clean bowl and let the temperature cools down after cooling down, you can now mix the other ingredients for our “torta” in a big bowl and crack 2 eggs. Here is the other one. Then beat the eggs. Get a fork. Make sure that the eggs are beaten evenly after this we’ll get the flour or the all purpose flour add the flour in the bowl with beaten eggs Pour everything. Then continue beating. these two ingredient (eggs and flour) are what we called Binder. and this is to bind all together the ingredients we need later like sardines, onions and etc. so when we cook this later on, you will see that all ingredients are binded together and will not separate Mix well. Now, let’s add the sardines. add two can of sardines then mashed it and mix it well. after that, add the sauted onion and garlic in the bowl. I sauted the onion and garlic to make our mixture tastier! Mix it well. Then add onion chives or green onions or scallion. Then add seasoning. This is very simple. We only need black pepper and salt. Mix it well. Make sure all ingredients are well-blended. Now were ready to cook our “tortang sardinas”. preheat the pan and apply cooking oil spray or regular oil like what we usually use. Add a scoop of mixture in the cooking pan. Here’s a tip for you when we cook the “Tortang sardinas” To make sure it will not break apart, fry a small portion at first Use 1/4 cup only, like what I did. It’s easy to flip if we fry a small portion of the mixture. Unlike frying a big portion, flipping it will surely be challenging, right? Fry for about 45 seconds to 1 minute. How will I know if it’s already cooked? Just glide the pan and if the the patty doesn’t stick anymore, it means it’s ready. For example, If the patty slides around while glide the pan like this, then this should be good. You can also flip it using a spatula or by a pan only. Here’s how we flip the patty by pan only. Push in the those splashed part carefully. That normally happens because the patty’s top side is not yet fully cooked, right? It’s because of the impact of the patty’s cooked side that’s why some part of the raw side splashed out a bit. So when we pushed in those splashed part, then it will turn alright eventually. continue cooking for another 30 seconds then transfer in a plate. Repeat the same frying proceedure with the rest of the mixture. Here’s another tip: Remove those excess particles in the pan before frying another patty. It will be burnt if you leave it there, The next patty will have a burnt part. It wouldn’t be nice to have it there. So I sprayed the cooking oil and added the second batch. It’s just the same procedure. Again, make sure to cook the bottom side of the patty before flipping it. There are times that even if you glide the pan, the patty won’t slide. We can use spatula to start flipping from outside part so we can move it a bit because it slightly adheres to the pan. If it began to loosen up, then you can easily slide the patty. This one is easier, I’ll show you how flip the patty using a spatula. if we fry a small portion of mixture, we can slant the pan to make flipping easier. Carefully flip it with a spatula. And notice there’s no splash unlike earlier. Doing same procedure, fry for another 30 to 40 seconds until the other side is fully cooked. Then transfer to the same plate. See? It’s perfectly cooked. I’ll just repeat same frying procedure until we finish up the mixture. I’ll fry another one. Transfer to a serving plate. And it’s ready to serve! here is our “tortang sardinas” Let’s go and taste it! It’s very easy to cook “Tortang Sardinas”. I like it best with ketchup or seasoning. How about you?
