"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........

Oil : 3tbsp
Turemric Powder : 2 tsp
Salt : according to your taste
Mustard seeds : 1 tsp
Urad dal : 1 tsp
Method Of Preparation :
Steam the fish until it gets cooked, usually Tilapia gets cooked very fast ( like in around 5 minutes). But when you using shark it will take some time to get cooked. So you have to adjust your timing according to the type of fish you are using.
Once the above process is done remove from heat and just shred it into small pieces by using your hand.
Heat oil in a wide pan add mustard seeds and urad dal once it sputters add the chopped onion.
Fry them till it becomes golden brown and add the chopped garlic and green chilies. Fry them all together for about 3-5 minutes.

Mix it all together and let it cook in simmer heat for about 8-10 minutes.
Remove from heat and garnish it with coriander leaves.
