Prawn Hash/Eral Puttu

If you are born and brought up with fresh sea foods, you will definitely miss them if you are not living in your home town,really i miss my home town especially for their super fresh seafoods. Nothing will beat those fresh seafoods, you have to compromise with the frozen ones if you live far away from your country as some of us will do.

We have to mix and match these available frozen seafoods here according to our tastebuds , before a month i prepared this tasty puttu aka hash with frozen tiny prawns for our lunch. I prepared this prawn hash quickly to serve along with a simple sambhar for our lunch, needless this delicious puttu tastes excellent with wonderful flavours and everyone at home simply loved it.Sending to Asiya Omar's Feast of Sacrifice.

3cups Prawns (tiny & frozen)
20nos Shallots or 2 nos Onions (chopped finely)
1inch Ginger (chopped finely)
5nos Garlic (chopped finely)
3nos Green chillies (chopped finely)
1/2tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Fennel seed powder
1/2cup Coconut (grated)
1tsp Cumin seed powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Cook the prawns with turmeric powder and water until they turns soft, smash the cooked prawn pieces.

Add the pepper powder, cumin seed powder, fennel seed powder, salt to the cooked mashed prawn pieces.

Heat enough oil and let splutters the mustard seeds and urad dal, add the chopped ginger,chopped green chillies and chopped garlic pieces to the seeds and fry until they turns slight brown.

Add immediately the chopped shallots or onions and cook everything until they turns transculent.
