Unakka Meen Chammanthi/Dry Fish Chammanthi

Dried Fish of Any Kind : 5 pcs. or as needed.
Fried Thinly Sliced Shallots : 1/2 cup
Fried Dry Red Chilies : To taste or about 10
Fried Coconut : 1/2 cup
Fried Curry Leaves :  a generous portion
Enough oil to fry
Red Chili Powder (optional) : 1/4 tsp




  • Clean and dry fish with a paper towel. Fry it in oil. Drain it on a paper towel.  Let it cool.
  • Transfer all the above ingredients to a mixer and blend it well.
  • A bit of lightly roasted red chili powder can be added to the mixer while mixing.


It can be stored in an air tight glass container  in the refrigerator for weeks for later use.

It is better to brown the coconut than shallow fry it.
