Meen Mulakittathu



Meen mulakittathu or mulaku chathachatu which means fish with crushed chilly flakes- is a spicy and quick side dish for rice.  It is a fish stir fry with crushed chilly flakes,ginger and shallots.It is popular in central and southern Kerala and is usually made with dry fish or dry prawns. But here I have used fresh boneless fish and this also tastes delicious. Here are the ingredients.

Ingredients

Boneless fish- 2 lb
Shallots crushed- 1 cup
Ginger - 2 inch thick

Crushed chilly flakes- 3/4 tsp
( adjust according to taste)
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Pepper powder- a pinch
clove powder- a pinch
lemon juice- 1 tsp
mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
curry leaves
coriander leaves
salt to taste
coconut oil- 2 tsp



Clean and cut fish into small pieces and marinate for 10 minutes with turmeric powder,a pinch of pepper powder, salt and lemon juice.
Lightly fry this in oil and set aside.

 In the same oil add mustard seeds. When they splutter add crushed onion, ginger, curry leaves and saute till golden brown.
Put back the fried fish and sprinkle chilly flakes and clove powder. Close lid and allow to cook in medium heat. When the water fully evaporated sprinkle coriander leaves.
Serve warm with rice.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
