Sura Puttu

Cook Sura pieces in water (fill water till it reaches just a little above the sura). While cooking, add turmeric pdr and some salt. Cook for 10 - 15 mins depending on how thick the fish is. Once cooked, strain the water, remove the skin and bones from the fishes and scramble it to crumbs.

In a wide pan, add 2 tbsp of oil. When oil is hot add some fennel seeds + garlic pods finely chopped (10 pods) + curry leaves + Finely chopped onion (1 large) + 7 to 8 green chillies chopped or slit . Saute the onion till light brown. To this add turmeric pdr + chilli pdr (1 tsp), After the masala smell leaves add sura to it and mix well. Adjust salt and sprinkle a lil pepper pdr to it. Saute it well till the fish becomes very dry. It tastes more yummy when the fish is browned a little too. Make sure you do not burn it though. Garnish with some coriander leaves.

Cheese quesadilla


Uncooked Tortilla - 2 nos (any kind)
Cheese - 1 cup grated cheese, sharp Cheddar or Mexican blend
Butter - 2 tbsp

For Garnish:

Sour cream

Cook the Tortillas in a pan, both sides. Spread butter on it while cooking. Layer the cheese over one of the tortilla and then top it up with the other tortilla. Cook over medium heat till the cheese melts down and the tortillas stick to each other. Flip it over in the middle if needed. You do not want to burn the tortillas while doing this :) Once done, serve it with some sour cream topped over it. You can also use salsa and guacamole.
