Fish Cutlets

Ingredients to make Fish Cutlets

  • 2 Cups of boiled and de-boned fish
  • 2 small potatoes (boiled and mashed)
  • 1⁄2 cup semolina or breadcrumbs
  • 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 Green chilies, finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste,
  • 1 tsp coriander powder,
  • ¼ tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric

How to make Fish Cutlets

  1. Mix the fish with mashed potato and mix them well.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onion, garam masala, green chilies and sauté till they are soft and translucent.
  3. Add the fish and potato mixture and fry until the raw smell disappears.
  4. Add the spice powders (coriander powder, garam masala, turmeric, salt and pepper). Sauté for 8-10 minutes, or until it is dry, remove from fire and let it cool
  5. Make into patties 1/2 inch thick. (I made cutlet shaped patties)
  6. Sprinkle both sides of patties with pepper, and then roll them with semolina or bread crumbs. (I used semolina since I had run out of bread crumbs)
  7. Warm up oil in a pan over medium heat, enough so it’s hot enough to cook but not burn. You know how your own burners work.
  8. Fry until golden brown, and flip to cook the other side.
