Meen Mutta Varuthathu/Fish Roe Fry

Meen Mutta Varuthathu/Fish Roe Fry

Today's post is another fish roe recipe. I have already posted a recipe of meen mutta thoran or fish raw sauteed with shredded coconut. This one is a fried version and is best with sardine fish roe as you can make small bite sized fitters.  But you can use any type of fish roe. For this fry the fish roe is marinated in a spicy batter and then shallow fried.This can be served as a appetizer or as a side dish with rice.

Any fish roe- 1 cup
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Curry leaves- 1 spring
Egg- 1
Corn starch- 1 tbs

Mix turmeric powder,salt and pepper powder with the fish roe and marinate for five minutes. Mix all the other ingredients,except curry leaves and make a thick smooth batter. Carefully and gently dip the fish roe and coat with this batter. Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves and the fish roe dipped in the batter. Use a  splatter guard or cover and fry (because it has a tendency to splatter) till both sides become golden brown.
Drain into paper towels and serve warm.
