Meen Peera Pattichathu




Meen Peera Pattichathu

Meen peera pattichathu is a traditional sea food delicacy of Kerala. It is usually made with small fish like anchovies or sardine. Here I have used smelt fish. The fish is cooked in spiced coconut and Kudampuli/gambooge  mixture and is cooked till they is no gravy left.It is served as a side dish for rice.

Ingredients
Fish - 1 lb
Grated coconut- 3/4 cup
Kudampuli- 3
Green chilly-3
shallots- 5-6
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste

For tempering
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds- a few
Dry red chilly 3
Curry leaves- one spring
Two tsp of coconut oil

Wash and clean fish and keep aside. Make a course paste of coconut, turmeric powder,chilly powder shallots,ginger and green chilly. In a cooking pot add this mixture along with the fish, salt and kudampuli. Sprinkle a little water not more than 1/4 cup. Cover and cook till done. Make sure that it becomes dry and there is no moisture left.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves and dry red chilly and after a minute add the cooked fish. Toss a mix well and after a minute switch off the flame.
Note: If you do not want to do the tempering you can finish off the dish with some fresh curry leaves and coconut oil.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy
