Fish - 500 g (any good fish can be used).

Potato - 2 medium size (cook and mash)

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp.

Method of Preparation

Cook the cleaned fish in a pan with turmeric powder, salt and little water sufficient enough to cook the fish. (Should not use more water to drain it). If water is more it will become sticky and we won't be able to make proper shape of cutlets.

When cooled remove the thorns, if any, from the fish and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and sauté onion, green chillies, garlic, ginger, and coriander leaves.

Add the cooked fish and mix well. Also add the mashed potato, garam masala powder and mix well. .

When cooled, make small flat balls in between your palms and press gently.

Beat the eggs well in a bowl.

Dip the flat balls one by one in the beaten egg.

Roll the balls one by one in the bread crumbs in a flat plate and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the balls in batches of 3-4, in a low to medium fire, and remove from the fire.

Serve hot.
