Fried Sardine Rolls

24 Apr

I was craving for old school breakfast recently. I kept thinking about roti sardine goreng (fried sardine rolls) and how nice to have it either for breakfast or tea break with a good ole cup of hot tea. I’ve tasted a few in my lifetime to know that those made by some vendors are not cooked properly or simply lesser sardine mixture.

So, I decided to come up with my very own version and made these yummy, not too spicy fried sardine rolls for the family.


  • 1 whole loaf of white bread
  • 1 tin Ayam Brand Sardines in Tomato Sauce 425g
  • 1 big onion, sliced finely
  • 1 fresh red chilli, sliced finely
  • 1 fresh green chilli, sliced finely (optional)
  • 1/4 cup spring onion, chopped finely
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon salt (for egg mixture)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • Enough oil for frying


Saute the onion with the red chilli (and green chilli) in a frying pan with oil for five minutes. Once fragrant, add the sardines with the tomato sauce and add sugar and salt. Cook for another 5 – 10 minutes.

Once cooked, remove the sardines into a bowl and mash them by using a fork. Add the tomato gravy and the chopped spring onion. Mix well.

Place a spoonful or two of the sardine mixture unto the bread and roll it firmly. Beat the eggs in another bowl and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Dip the sardine roll into the egg mixture and fry it in the heated oil until it turns golden brown.
