  1. Lightly fry all the ingredients, then add the sardines and the water. Once it begins to boil add the rice and stir frequently until the rice dries off.

  2. Once dry (but still moist) cover and allow to cook on slow fire for half hour. Enjoy!

  3. Note: Some people add only the sauce of the sardines and leave the sardines to be added when the rice is dry and before covering to avoid the sardines from crumbling (Sardines are very delicate) others (as my Mom) prefer to add them when they uncover the rice, so that they are completely protected from crumbling. I prefer to add them before because they add more flavor to the rice. It will be delicious anyway, so don’t fear!
