ABOUT Quick-Fix Fish Cutlets RECIPE

Who doesn’t love quick-fix meals? And when it is crunchy, spicy, savoury (chatpata) and fried what more can one ask for? I discovered tinned tuna during my childhood when one of my mum’s friends had made some amazing Tuna-Mayo sandwiches and cutlets. I savour the taste of fish cutlets in general and this is a super easy way of making them without all the trouble of going to the market, cleaning the fish and cooking it. I like to use the tuna preserved in oil – it is tastier and lends a softer texture to the dish. All you need to do is bind the flaked fish with spices and coat in bread crumbs and shallow fry.
