Fish Puttu

This is one dish which i started making after coming to US. One of my friend Priya akka gave timely advice to make this puttu out of Salmon fish. I tried salmon fish curry, but i din't like it that much. So next time tried this dish taking Priya akka's advice. Taste delicious. Now i make this dish whenever i have salmon fish. This goes well with any main dishes like chapathi, roti, rice and rasam.

Can make this dish with fishes like tuna, King fish, Whitening, cod fish etc...

You will need:

  • ½ kg fish(1 lb)
  • 2 big onions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 5 green chillies
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder(optional)
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp pepper powder
  • salt for taste
  • curry leaves
  • chopped cilantro/ coriander leaves for garnish
Step 1:

Cut the fish roughly(big chunks) and boil it in the water with salt, turmeric, and pepper for 10 mins in medium flame .

Step 2:

In the mean time heat non stick pan and add oil to it. Then add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves one after another. Then add onion, green chillies, garlic and saute it till it become golden brown colour.

Step 3:

In the mean time just shred the cooked fish using hands or using knife.

Step 4:

Now add tomatoes and saute it for 2 mins. You can substitute with tomato puree also. Then add chili powder, coriander powder and saute it for a min. Add the shredded cooked fish to this and saute it for few more mins till you get your desired consistency. Check for salt since the cooked fish already has salt in it.

Step 5:

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with hot rice and rasam. Can add grated coconut also for garnishing

This is an excellent recipe I have ever had for a fish dish. I tried it as the way it was explained but on a Tilapia fish. It was amazing. Thanks a lot for such a great recipe
