Theluli Mas (Spicy Fried Fish)



Theluli mas or spicy fried fish is very common in Maldivian cuisine. The ingredients vary to prepare this fish from island to island. My recipe is a very easy recipe as “lonumirus curry powder” which is a combination of dried chilies & some spices sold almost in every local shops & it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. This fish is a must on our dinner & lunch table.

Ingredients:
1 Tuna lion about 650 grms (cut vertically in to 1/3 inchthick steaks)
21/2tbs lonumirus curry powder
21/2tbs tomato paste
Salt
1/3 to 1/2 cup vegetable oil or olive oil

Method:
In a bowl mix lonumirus curry powder, tomato paste & salt, rub this paste on the tuna steaks & leave for ½ an hour covered with plastic wrap. Heat oil in a sauce pan & arrange the steaks, put lid on & cook on low heat until bottom is fried.

Turn the steaks to upside down & fry again until slightly crispy. I like bottom of my steaks to burn the paste lightly to give a stronger flavor. This goes well with anything, rice, roshi, bread  & even with boiled vegetables ………………………………………enjoy!
