Breaded Anchovies/Dilis

This is one of the favorite dishes among Filipinos. This breaded dilis or anchovies is so crunchy and perfect with rice. It could be eaten as a snack aside from "sumsuman" (eaten with alcohol). But we usually dip it on soysauce-vinegar mixture and eat it with rice. This can be prepared for breakfast, lunch or supper.

1/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon red hot sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 ounce package of dried dilis (Filipino Anchovies)
2 cups flours
1/2 cup cooking oil

In a medium bowl, mix Sugar, vinegar, hot sauce (if desired) and salt. Toss dilis in the mixture until well coated and dredge in flour. In a medium skillet, fry dilis over moderate heat until golden brown and crispy, keeping each one separate. Drain on paper towel. Serve with a dip of vinegar, salt and pepper. (
