Fish Puttu/Fish Stir Fry

Fish Puttu/Fish Stir Fry

Fish puttu is a delicious comfort dish. It is scrambled fish stir fried with onions and spices. I often make scrambled fish with caramelized onion,but this is a more healthier version and tasty too. I tried this recipe for the first time at my aunts house in Chennai. It looked very similar to meen thoran, but had a different taste and I love this dish.Any meaty fish can be used to make this recipe like shark,salmon or king fish. Here I have used Tuna.Fish puttu tastes delicious with rice and rasam.

Fish- 1 1/2 lb
(here I used fresh Tuna)
Onion- 1 medium
Chopped Ginger- 2 tbs
Chopped garlic- 1 tbs
Grated coconut- 3 tbs
Green chilly- 3-4
Cumin- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Asafotida- a pinch
Urad dal-1 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
Chopped coriander- a hand full
lemon juice- a few drops


Cook fish with turmeric,salt and pepper powder. Sprinkle a few drops of water and cook. Allow this to cool. If the fish has skin and bones take it out and using a fork scramble it and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add urad dal and let it get golden brown. Add hing, curry leaves, ginger, garlic and green chilly and stir fry for a minute. Next add onion and saute till golden brown. Add chilly powder, a pinch of turmeric,cumin powder, coconut and the shredded fish. Stir fry this for two to three minutes and add chopped coriander and lemon juice. Serve with rice.
