Tilapia Fish Puttu/ Scramble

This is one of the easiest fish puttu recipes. Tilapia is a light textured and delicate fish and cooks in no time and hence does not required to be precooked unlike the other fish puttu recipes.  The taste is also very good compared to the other fish puttu recipes like with shark, tuna, or salmon.

1. Tilapia, 3 slices, cut into cubes.
2. Diced onion, 1 cup.
3. Green chilies, slit into two.
4. Ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon.
5. Fennel seeds, 1/2 teaspoon.
6. Turmeric powder, a pinch.
7. Chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon.
8. Salt, as needed.
9. Curry leaves, a sprig.

Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil.  Once the oil is hot, add the fennel seeds and fry for a few seconds. Add the diced onions and curry leaves and saute for a few minutes until brown. Then add the ginger-garlic paste, slit green chilies, turmeric powder, chili powder, salt and the cubed fish and cook closedd under low flame until the fish is cooked. Once the fish is cooked, scramble it finely under medium flame until it gets light brown. Serve with rice and any spicy gravies.
