MEEN KOTTHU CURRY

Usually I prepare fish in curries or fry most of the time. This "Meen kotthu curry" is nothing but a sidedish item which is remarkably easy and delicious. This recipe is made with shredded fillets meat which I prepared here with Tilapia fish. It could also be done with Salmon too. I love them to have with Kanji a lot. I learnt this unique recipe from my husband who also cooks well.
INGREDIENTS

2 Fillets (Tilapia).

1 Onion.

1 tbs Chopped Ginger.

1 tbs Chopped Garlic.

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/4 tsp Jeera.

1/2 tsp Chilli powder.

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder.

Curry leaves few chopped.

Salt to taste.

Water for boiling purpose.

METHOD.

Cook the fillets in boiling water for 2 to 3 mins. Drain the water and let the fillets cool for a while. Later shred the fillets meat finely.

Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds. After it starts spluttering add jeera followed by ginger, garlic and curry leaves. Saute them for few sec.

Add onions and salt, saute it till it becomes brown in colour. Add chilli powder, turmeric powder. When it is well seasoned , stir in the prepared fillet meat and let the mixture be covered for 2 to 3 min under low flame.





Serve hot with rice.

I also submit this recipe to EAT HEALTHY - PROTEIN RICH CONTEST- HOSTED BY SANGEETH





Enjoy!!!

Hi Suma, I have a can of tuna and dont know what to do with it! This recipe seems best made with fresh fish...will anyway try this with the canned stuff, and share results!

That is an innovative and unique fish recipe, thanks Suma, I have to try this sometime..

Dibs said...

Hi Suma, For the canned tuna version, I added some tamarind juice as well. It came out like a chutney and went well with rice and chappatis both! I am a veget, but hubby loved it!

Indranee said...

Unique, but a great recipe! My mom makes a somewhat similar recipe, but not with Tilapia. Will definitely try this one.
