Fish Cutlet


Fish Cutlet

Fish cutlet is a spicy snack and can also be served as an excellent appetizer. You can use any kind of fleshy fish fillets or canned ones..its entirely up to you. In this recipe I used tilapia fillets. It is spicy,delicious and easy to make.


Ingredients
Fish-1 lb
Potato large-1
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Green chilly-1
Onion-1large
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Pepper powder- 3/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped-a handful
lemon juice- 1/2 lemon
salt to taste

Egg white-2
Bread crumbs- 1 cup

Cut fish into pieces and cook  adding salt turmeric and little water. Once cooked,drain off the excess water using a strainer.
Wash potato and cook with the skin on. When it is cooked peel off the skin and grate it or mash and keep aside.
Heat one tsp of oil in pan and add onions,chopped green chilly,garlic and ginger paste. Saute till onions are soft and raw flavor disappears. Add the dry masala and fry for one more minute and switch off the flame. Add this to the mashed potatoes and crumbled fish mixture. Add chopped coriander leaves, salt and lemon juice. Combine every thing and make small balls. Flatten on your palm into patties.
In a separate bowl beat egg white till light and fluffy. Spread bread crumbs on a plate.Take each patties and dip in egg whites and then roll on the bread mixture and coat it evenly. Drop patties in hot oil and fry till both sides are evenly brown.

Try this..
