Ney Meen Mutta Thoran (King Fish Egg Fry)

My Ammamma (granny - mother's mom) was very fond of fish eggs, especially sardine eggs and i do remember my mother preparing it specially for her. Those days my ammamma usually says "Buy Sardine, will get lots of eggs". Now my ammamma is no more. She passed away last May. Making these eggs just made me remember her words.

Ingredients:
Neymeen Mutta - 150 gm
Grated Coconut - 2 table spoon
Non Spicy Red Chilly - 1 no (Chop into thin round pieces)
Onion - 1 small (Chopped into fine pieces)
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Turmeric Powder - A pinch
Chilly Powder - 1/2 t spoon
Pepper Powder - 1/2 t spoon
Salt - To taste
Oil - 1 1/2 table spoon

Preparation:
  1. Clean and slice the king fish eggs.
  2. Heat a pan and add oil.
  3. Add onions, chopped red chillies and saute well.
  4. Add salt, turmeric powder, chilly powder and mix well.
  5. Add sliced king fish eggs and mix well.
  6. Add grated coconut, mix well and cover the pan with a lid and allow to cook (For around 2-3 minutes).
  7. Sprinkle black pepper powder and garnish with curry leaves.
