Suran Roast/ Vegetarian's Fish Roast

This is one of my favorite veggie.
If you have neglected this veggie before this..feel sorry for it. This Suran is a Blood Purifier. Thou it pricks your tongue while eating. It can be avoided using tamarind water when applying masala to it.

Being a vegan..I crave to try out the spiciness in the Non-vegetarian food. I prefer this suran roast for a spicy yet a tasty one. This suran absorbs the spiciness and also pretends to look like fish fry.

Hope you all will try this out.


Suran-1/4 kg


1. Chilli powder-3 spoons
2. Turmeric powder- ¼ spoon
3. Tamarind water- (of a small lemon size tamarind)
4. Salt- as required
Mix chilli powder,turmeric powder and salt well by sprinkling tamarind water.


Remove the skin of suran . cut them into slices. Let it be little thick slices.
Boil them in water till they become tender. It may take nearly 5 minutes. Now let it cool and apply the masala’s on it . Fry them in Dosa Tava with little oil on both sides till they get roasted.
