My Amma's Birthday and her Sura Puttu recipe ;)
My Amma turned a year older today. Wish her a blessed birthday and a healthy long life ahead. Usually it should be others treating a birthday baby, but it's other way round in our case. I requested my Amma to make my favourite dishes with Sura (shark) on her birthday.
She prepared a superb lunch for us today with her delicious and scrumptious Sura Curry, Sura Puttu, Sura Varuval and Mustard Green Stir Fry. I had double serving with white rice...lol!
We bought her her favourite Cheesecake when we visited her after kid's school over.
I shot this cake using my Galaxy Note at the bakery upon purchase ;)
Now, let's move on to one of the dishes she prepared for us today..Sura Puttu. I'm just giving you a rough measurement as I can't get a detailed recipe from my Amma. Her palm is her measuring tool!
SURA PUTTU (SHARK PUTTU)by Amma
- 3 cups of shark fish flesh plus some cartilage part (skinned)
- enough water
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1.5 tbsp chilli powder
- 1/4 tsp fennel powder
- 3 shallots ~ thinly sliced
- 1 green chilli ~ sliced
- 2 dried chillies ~ sliced
- 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 sprig curry leaves
- In a small wok or pot, mix the fish with turmeric powder and salt. Add water and allow to boil until it dries up.
- In another bowl, mix boiled fish with shredded coconut, chilli powder, fennel powder and little salt.
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in same wok you boiled the fish earlier. Saute mustard seeds, then add shallots, chillies and curry leaves until fragrant.
- Add in the fish coconut mixture and keep stirring for 5 minutes. Dish out and serve.
Goes well with a plate of white rice and fish curry :)

Great dish,super tempting.
Happy Birthday to Amma! Sorry, I am late. Cheesecake ada lagi? Sri, this shark fish is the Jaws fish kah? I mean, we can get shark fish meat? Sorry, I am blur when it comes to fish. It looks very sedap with all the spices and coconut.ReplyDelete
Thanks dear PH! Yes, its the same fish which fins are used to make Sharkfin soup :)Delete
The meat can be found in any wet market. A little expensive though. Really tasty one...especially if its fried using lots of spices. My most fav fish of all. You should try it sometime :)
Sorry Love.. just busybody sikit... nak mencelah sikit pasal pertanyaan Phong..Delete
Phong.. kalau u pegi wet market.. just cari IKAN YU... sebab mereka di pasar tak panggil ikan jaws or jerung.. sebab i rasa kalau jaws tu.. ia bersaiz besar.. hehehe... bagi ikan yu atau shark ni.. ia saiz sedang aje.. takdelah sampai besar sangat macam dalam filem tu.. anyway.. isi ikan ni sangat sedap kalau kena cara memasaknya.. ia juga berkhasiat & ada nilai perubatan terutama bagi kanak2.. ia boleh menghindarkan kanak2 dari terkena cacing..
Biasa kalau kita beli ikan yu.. penjual akan tolong buangkan kulit ikan yang kasar & berpasir tu..
selamat mencuba ye Phong..
Happy belated b'day to your mom Love! haha..nak tumpang gelak kat komen PH..but everything looks lovely.. :)ReplyDelete
