Meen thoran is a simple dish to prepare.You can use any fish to make this. Especially Ayala/Mackeral, Sravu/Shark, Ayakkoora/Seer fish are good for this. You can use canned tuna too. Take this as a side dish with rice.

tuna 2 cans
pepper powder 2 teaspoons
turmeric powder 1 tea spoon
coconut 4 tablespoons
pearl onions 10
ginger 1 inch piece
green chillies 3

Remove water (or oil) from the tuna.
Chop small onions, green chilies and ginger piece.Mix them very well by hands, with tuna , coconut, curry leaves, salt and all the powders. Heat coconut oil, splutter mustard seeds. Add the mixture into this and stir well.Keep this on a low flame for a while by keeping the lid closed and stirring occasionally. Let it dry and remove from fire.
If you make this with any other fish, first cook fish with turmeric powder, salt and water. Remove all the bones and take the fleshy part. Crumble it. Then follow the same method. If you want to get a more spicy dish, add little red chilly powder.
