Hi, This recipie is good.But the traditional way of this is Just crush the small onions,green chillies,ginger,garlic,curry leaves,salt and coconut together.Soak the puli in vary little water and tear the puli into small pieces and mix this well with the crushed mix.Add Kzhuva(any small fish) to it and mix it with hands and keep it for 5 minutes. Put this mixure in a "mannu chatti" ,cover it and cook in a low flame.No need to add water. Will get cooked in 5 minutes.Add heated oil into this and serve hot.Add Kanthari mulaku instead of the green chillies and Row mango instead of the puli which will give a nice flavour .


This is a yummy fish recipe.
