Another Non veg special. Sura puttu (Shark fish Stir fry) is a popular recipe in south india. This sura puttu is good for lactose secretion after delivery.And we should also know Shark fish is not advisable to eat during pregnancy.I have seen many people who eat non veg but avoid fish to the fishy smell or some other reason.Try them with this dish and they will never say no to fish. Fish is good source of Vitamin D. So don't avoid eating fish.


Shark fish/Sura
2 big slices/5 small slices
3 medium sized
10 pds
Fennel seed
½ Tsp
Turmeric powder
½ Tsp
Chilli powder
Green chillis
3 Tbsp

Coriander leaves
Few Chopped


1.Wash the fish thrice. In a bottomed vessel add water and place the fish until it get immersed.
Add turmeric powder and cook the fish for 10-15 mins

2.Finely chop the onions and green chilli. Peel the garlic pods and keep aside.

3.Take the cooked fish out and allow it to cool. Squeeze the fish as much as u can. smash the fish with the help of your hands

4.Add turmeric powder and chilli powder. Mix well.

5.In a kadai heat oil and add fennel seeds. Then add chopped onions,green chilli and garlic pods. Saute well until onion becomes translucent.

6.Now add the fish and saute well. Add salt at this stage. Stir every 5 mins and maintain medium flame. You will achieve golden color after 20-25 mins of frying.Garnish with coriander leaves.

Easy method but it takes long time to be fried. Enjoy with sambar rice or rasam.


1.Instead of adding garlic pods we can also also add 1 Tsp of ginger garlic paste. I personally love to bite the garlic pods in this recipe.
2.Squeeze the fish as much as you can.
3.I have also tried this dish with different fish. All were having similar taste.
