Fish Thoran
Picture Updated
Fish Thoran or stir fry is a very tastier dish than any other fry. My Amma makes this at home often. Fish is the most frequent dish in our home. After marriage I felt quiet difficult to have vegetables all the day. As I'm from southern part of tamilnadu, we add lots of coconut in our daily food. Most of the sides we do is thoran. But, I never knew that it is thoran until I got married. Yeah, we call this as Poriyal. There is a little difference between poriyal and thoran.

Fish Fry

This recipe tastes great with rasam, rice. You must give it a try. I'm very sure, you will try this again. Here is the recipe...

Fish Thoran

Fish(vanchuram/sheela) - 1/2 kg
Shallots / Small onions - 15
Grated Coconut - 2 cups(half shell)
Red Chilli - 12
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tblspn


Clean the fish and place it in a bowl.

Grind coconut, red chilli, cumin and onion into a coarse paste without adding water. If you add more coconut masala, fry will be more tasty.
Now combine together fish, ground coconut masala, turmeric and salt. Mix well to even coat the masala.

Heat oil in a pan, add the marinated fish and cook over low flame.

Stir for every 30 seconds until the fish is cooked well. Do not keep stirring very often. The fish will be broken into small pieces.

When the fish turns golden brown and cooked, remove from flame.

Serve with rasam, rice. Enjoy!
