Sura Puttu

Hi friends, Today i am going to post the recipe for sura puttu. Sura ( shark ) is a type of fish variety. Being in UK, its has become very rare to get this fish. One day when i was shopping at an Indian store, i found this fish in the frozen section. So i immedietly picked one pack. It will always taste better if we could get a fresh fish. But on the other hand something is better than nothing. But even with frozen fish it tasted great. Its a very simple yet delicous dish. Everyone will love this recipe with no doubt. Even my daughter "Trisa" who is just 3 years loved this so much that she asked for more and more. People prepare this sura puttu recipe in many different methods.
