Fish cutlets,balls,fingers...

I made this fish cutlets(in different shapes) last week.Started making the traditional cutlets first, but as i gave first one to my toddler, he was having difficult time holding the whole piece without dropping it on the floor.So decided to make finger shaped,ball shaped cutlets which he liked alot.Then what, the evening snack became dinner..:))

Ingredients

Fish (boneless) - 3 pieces of cod loins (you can use tilapia,king fish etc)
Potato - 2 (boiled)
Green chillies - 2 (chopped)
Onion -1 (finely chopped)
Chilly powder -1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Garam masala - 1/2tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2tsp
Curry leaves - a few (chopped)
Egg - 1
(separate egg yolk and white)
Bread crumps - 1/2 cup
Oil - for deep frying


Method

Cook fish with little salt and turmeric powder and mash them well.(i cooked them in microwave for approx : 10 mts).Boil potatoes and mash them well.In a pan heat oil and saute onions well till they are brown.Now add green chillies and gg paste and saute for some more time.Then add chilli,turmeric and garam masala powders and fry till the raw smell goes.Switch off the heat and let it cool down little bit.Now add mashed fish, potatoes ,salt and egg yolk into it and mix well.Mix everything very well.Make cutlets out of it and dip it in egg white first and then roll it into the bread crumps and deep fry them till golden in color.

This recipe is good, I use almost exactly the same version, except I don't usually add anything to the fish when cooking. Have you tried using canned tuna ( in brine, not oil ) ?. It is an easy but still healthy option , just drain the tuna and add to the sauteed mixture, it crumbles by itself during mixing .
