Meen Mutta Thoran



Meen Mutta Thoran

Today's recipe is fish roe and coconut stir fry. I am quiet sure there are lots of people in Kerala who love this fish delicacy .Roe is the egg mass of the fish . This is an exotic fish recipe and back home meen mutta/roe is usually marinated and fried in coconut oil or made like stir fry with coconut. My mom also makes it like omelet by cutting off the thin membrane and scooping out the egg mass. You can use roe from fish like pom fret,king fish or sardine.

Ingredients
Fish Roe - 3/4-1 cup
Onion- 1 medium
Shallots thinly sliced- 1/2 cup
Ginger - 1 inch thick
Curry leaves- a few springs
Green chilly-2
Dry red chilly- 2
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Cumin powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Coconut grated- 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Coconut oil- 2 tbs



Heat coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves,dry red chillies and finely chopped ginger and saute for a minute. Next add onions,shallots and green chilly and saute till golden brown. Add turmeric, salt and washed and cleaned fish roe/meen mutta and mix well. Cover and cook for a minute. Add chilly powder, pepper powder and cumin powder and continue to saute for another two minutes.Finally add grated coconut and fry for another one minute. Serve with rice.
