Vanpayar thoran


Vanpayar (Red lobia) - 1 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Green chillies - 2
Salt to taste

Dry red chillies - 2
Shallots - 3 to 4, sliced
Garlic - 2 or 3 cloves, crushed
Curry leaves - a sprig
Grated coconut - 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Jeera/cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 to 2 tbsp


1. Soak vanpayar for a few hours. I usually soak it overnight. Cook it with turmeric powder, green chillies, salt and enough water. Do not overcook as it becomes mushy. If there is excess water, keep it on high flame till water is evaporated.
2. In a pan, heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add dry chillies, shallots, crushed garlic and curry leaves and saute for a minute. Meanwhile mix the grated coconut and jeera with your fingers. Add this to the pan and combine well. Now add the cooked vanpayar and stir fry for sometime till the ingredients are combined well and becomes dry.
