Anchovies and dried anchovies

Anchovies are tiny salt water fish used in cuisines all around the world. Usually canned (in oil), frozen or dried.

In Malaysia, they are used e.g. in rice porridge. In Sri Lanka they are used usually dried in various dishes, e.g. halmesu moju, which is pickled eggplant with anchovies. It was very interesting, that when they bought the dried anchovies on the market, they removed they heads one by one, they washed them, dried again and only then used them for cooking.
