Sura(Shark) Puttu

Selvam got Shark one day and I have never cooked it before. He had eaten it in my cousin's house and he liked that, so I called her up and asked her how to cook.

I tried it out and it came really well.


Shark 500gms,
Large onions/Small Onions (almost 400 gms),
Garlic flakes 5-6,
Ginger/Garlic paste 1 tbsp,
Green Chilly 2-3,
Turmeric powder 2 tsp,
Red Chilly powder - 1 tsp

For Seasoning
Mustard 1 tsp,
Few Curry leaves ,
Few Coriander leaves
Oil 1 tsp


1) Clean the shark pieces well.
2) In a vessal add the shark pieces, turmeric powder and little salt and let it cook well, (Approximately 10-15) until the shark is cooked well.
3) Once the shark is cooked well, you can peel the outer black & white hard skin easily.
4) Squeeze the water out of it and grate it well and make a mixture by adding turmeric powder, chilly powder.
5) In a tawa add oil and add the ingredients for seasoning and add the garlic flakes, green chillies, ginger/garlic paste and saute well.
6) Once the onion is fried well, add the shark mixture to it.
7) Let them blend well for sometime and get cooked together. (approx 10 mins).
8) Garnish it with coriander leaves.
