Fish Puttu Shredded Fish Stir Fry


10 comments

Fish puttu is a traditional kerala dish. Its usually cooked with shark or king fish. In south
India we call it as sura puttu and it is most popular in all non-vegeterian cooking. It goes
well with fish kuzhambhu and sambar.
It can also be a great side-dish for biryani. Its hard to find shark meat where we live, so I
substitute it with Tilapia, which actually taste almost as good as shark puttu. If you are lucky
to get shark meat use that instead. Its very easy to make and tastes awesome.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
No of servings: 4-5
Spice Level: 3 out of 5

Ingredients :

Fish : 800gms (You can use any fish, Ive used Tilapia)

Onion : 1 (large) (finely chopped)

Garlic pods : 8-9 (finely chopped)

Green chilies : 6-7 (Finely chopped) (Adjust chilies according to your spice level)

Curry Leaves : 8-9

Coriander Leaves : few for garnishing.

Oil : 3tbsp

Turemric Powder : 2 tsp

Salt : according to your taste

Mustard seeds : 1 tsp

Urad dal : 1 tsp


Method Of Preparation :

1.

Steam the fish until it gets cooked, usually Tilapia gets cooked very fast ( like in
around 5 minutes). But when you using shark it will take some time to get cooked. So you
have to adjust your timing according to the type of fish you are using.

2.

Once the above process is done remove from heat and just shred it into small pieces
by using your hand.

3.

Heat oil in a wide pan add mustard seeds and urad dal once it sputters add the
chopped onion.

4.

Fry them till it becomes golden brown and add the chopped garlic and green chilies.
Fry them all together for about 3-5 minutes.

5.

Now add the turmeric powder, salt, curry leaves and finally the shredded fish.

6.

Mix it all together and let it cook in simmer heat for about 8-10 minutes.

7.

Remove from heat and garnish it with coriander leaves.

coriander leaves in to a fine paste.

2.

Now add turmeric powder, red chili powder, salt, and tamarind water into the paste.

3.

You can add a little water into the mixture to make it a loose paste. (the consistency
of the paste should be thin)

4.

Now add the fish slices into the paste and marinate overnight or you can let it stand
in the fridge for atleast 4 hours.
