Fish Puttu | Sura Puttu | Shredded Fish indian Side

Fish Puttu is my all time favorite after the fish fry. This is a common dish done at home and brings back fond memories to me. Its a simple and easy dish that can be prepared with very less oil compared to the indian fish fry recipes. Goes well with sambar, rasam and rice hmmm yummm!!!

Usually fish puttu is done with shark fish/ sura meen, but you can simply make this with any fish fillet, I have even tried it with Salmon and it tastes so yum. Ideally the shark fish is cleaned and boiled in water with salt and turmeric and later the skin and bones are discarded to make this puttu. But to make things simple I would say simply use fish fillets to avoid the messy job :-) isn't that simple???



Ingredients 

Fish Fillets - 5 (I used haddock fish)
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Ginger - 1 inch finely chopped
Garlic - 3-4 pods chopped
Green chilli - 4-5 chopped fine
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Peppercorns - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp


Method 

  • In a saucepan fill water to half bring it to a boil and add the fish pieces with little salt and 1/2 turmeric let it boil in a closed lid for 5-6 minutes. Once done discard the water, drain the fish pieces in a kitchen towel and you can also break them into small pieces
  • In a kadai/ wok heat oil and once hot add the mustard seeds and wait for it to pop, then add the peppercorns  ginger garlic, curry leaves and chopped green chilli, give it a good mix and later add the onions. Once the onions brown add the masalas and the fish. Keep mixing well until well combined.
  • Use the stirring spoon to break the fish pieces to fine, check for salt and serve hot

Cooks Wisdom 

- Adding salt while boiling is key in this recipe
- In case you are using fish with bones, try and discard the bones and skin after boiling stage.
- And big fish can be used for this recipe
