Fish Cutlets

Cutlets are always delicious,whether its veg cutlet or a non veg one,Isn't it?? We all love cutlets a lot.They serve as a inviting appetizer among parties and functions.They are easy way of sneaking vegetables,fish or chicken in mashed potatoes.This time I tried it with tuna packets as they have many health benefits on heart.The tuna cutlets are easy to prepare as they are minced and don't need to be cooked or minced again.Do try this at home for your loved ones!!

Tuna 180gm pkt with less water(refer notes)
Potato 1 medium size
Onion chopped fine 3/4
Green chillies 2 fine chopped(refer notes)
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder 3/4 tsp
Garam masala 1/3 tsp
Curry leave 1 sprig torn  in bits
Oil 1 tbsp + 1 cup (deep frying)
to coat
bread crumbs 3/4 cup
egg white 1

-Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker or microwave.Mash & keep aside in a bowl.
-Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and saute onion till lightly browned.Add the bits of curry leaves,ginger -garlic paste and green chillies chopped.Saute till the raw smell of ginger-garlic paste disappears.
-Add the spices,salt on low flame and saute.
-Rinse the tuna packet twice with water after draining the water in the packet/can.Squeeze out excess water.
-Add the shredded/minced tuna in it.Toss with spices.
-Cover and cook for 7-8 minutes on medium flame.Uncover the lid,adjust salt.
-Add the mashed potatoes if tuna is cooked.Mix well until combined.Put off flame and cool down the mixture.
-In the mean time,Heat oil in another deep pan /wok .Take the egg white in a bowl and bread crumbs in a plate.
-Divide the mixture into 12 or 13.Make disc shapes out of each portions or your desired shapes.
-Dip it in egg white and roll in bread crumbs.
-When the oil is hot,dip each into the oil carefully without splashing.
-Turn and cook all sides until evenly browned.
-Remove on a paper towel and Serve warm !!

Serves 12 cutlets

* You can use any boneless fish for making cutlets.If you are using any fresh fish,then cook the fish with salt,turmeric powder ,pepper powder and water.Drain the water and mince or shred the fish before adding to the mixture.I have used tuna packet in this to ease out this step.
* I usually don't add the green chillies in the cutlets as kids usually feel very spicy when biting through.Instead I increase the pepper powder to 1/4 tsp more.
* These cutlets can be shaped and refrigerated before making each time.You can just dip in egg white and roll in bread crumbs,fry and serve hot to untimely guests or quick snack to kids.

I love fried food though I don't make that often. I am thinking of making fried fish cutlets as the schools have started they are a good school lunch with salad.
