Fish Cutlets

Cutlets are always a favorite of kids...So here is the recipe of fish cutlets


Fish (any fleshy fish) - 1 kg
Big onion - 1 big or 2 medium sized, finely chopped
Garlic - 4-5 big cloves, crushed or chopped fine
Ginger - 1 inch piece, crushed or chopped fine
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Green chilly - 3, chopped fine
Chilly powder - 1 tsp ( as per tolerance level)
Salt - as per taste

Boiled potato - 1 big
Egg - 1, lightly beaten
Breadcrumbs - 1 cup


Boil the fish pieces with little water, salt and turmeric. Cook till its done. Remove excess water. Once the fish is cooled, remove the bones and chop the fish roughly in a chopper. Keep it aside

In a heavy bottomed pan, add enough oil. When its hot, add chopped onions, green chilly, garlic, ginger and curry leaves. Saute till they are slightly brown. Sprinkle salt to expedite the browning process. Add chilly powder and saute well. Now add the shredded fish and saute well. Mix the fish thoroughly with the masala and saute till the mixture is somewhat dry. Add some chopped coriander leaves in this stage, if you would like.

Peel the boiled potato and smash it with a fork. Add this to the fish mixture and combine well with hand. Now take small balls and make it into desired shape, dip it in egg and then in bread crumbs. You can either freeze it

or fry till they are golden brown.
