Meen Mutta Thoran (Scrambled Fish Roe)

Meen Mutta Thoran or Scrambled Fish Roe is a delicious side dish with rice. Fish Roe is a great source of Vitamin D and ample source of Omega – 3, which makes it extra special! Most of you might have had this Meen mutta thoran sometime; It is a tasty and delightful simple dish.

After Lent season, kids were demanding their favorite non-veg dishes, and this Seer fish egg caught my eye while in the shop. It is in great demand and rarely available, so I considered myself lucky. Wanted to make this Meen mutta thoran, which I learned from mummy (my mil) and so started straight away. The egg was good and big; and got quite lot of egg mass to satisfy the entire family.

I have used Big Onions in this recipe, you can add little shallots/ small onions to enhance the taste. Also, you can try adding little chili powder for a different color and appeal. So, next time you see those eggs, remember to try out this yummy Meen Mutta thoran.
