Fish Cutlets

This post rounds up my series on our New Years gathering where The Lovely Wife and I served a variety of finger food or Tapas.
Fish Cutlets are very popluar in Indian cooking. My mom used to make a mean fish cutlet as does my Mother in law. The Lovely Wife too has her own version of Fish Cutlets and she decided to make a batch to go with the rest of the food.
I've always liked fish cutlets. There's something nice about boneless fish mashed together with potatoes and spices and then fried. Its the kind of food that you can just keep popping in your mouth!
This is what The Lovely Wife Does.

4 potatoes
2 cans tuna (small cans)
1 large onion - chopped finely
1 red chilli - chopped finely
1 bunch coriander - chopped finely
1 egg
2 Tbps Fish Curry Powder
1 Tbsp meat curry powder
Boil the potatoes and mash them together with the tuna. Combine with the onion, chilli and coriander. Add in the curry powders and mix well. Season with salt and pepper and then add in the beaten egg. Mix well to combine nicely.
Form into small patties and then roll in breadcrumbs. Fry till cooked.

Everyone really enjoyed the cutlets and its no surprise as these cutlets are really delicious. You cant just stop at one! They make a great dish for any meal and at any time of the day too.
