Tuna Cutlets

 Really fed up of eating tuna salads... had an overdose of salads and tuna stir fries and tuna sandwiches. Since I had 4 cans (170 gm shredded tuna) in my larder, I thought I will make Tuna cutlets with my fish cutlet recipe. I made 22 cutlets and it was really yummy!!!!!

Shredded Tuna : Four 170gm cans
Potato: 2 large boiled and mashed
Onions: 2 big diced
Garlic: 1 tbsp chopped fine
Ginger: 2 tbsp chopped fine
Green chillies: 4 chopped fine
Garam Masala: 1 heaped tsp
Pepper: 1.5 tsp
Coriander leaves: a bunch chopped fine
Eggs: 2 beaten
Bread Crumbs: 1 cup
Salt and Oil as required

Drain out the liquid from the tuna can using a strainer. You might have to squeeze the meat to completely drain.
If you are using any other kind of fish, boil it with a little water, turmeric and salt. Drain the liquid and shred the fish
In a heavy bottomed pan, saute onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger till onions turn slightly brown.
Add the pepper powder, garam masala, salt and the shredded tuna and saute for a few minutes.
Throw in the coriander leaves and mix properly and switch off the stove.
Let it cool.
Now add the mashed potatoes and mix properly.
Make small balls and shape it the way you like and dip in beaten egg and then bread crumbs.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the cutlets till golden brown.
Or you can freeze it and fry it later.
Serve it with tomato sauce.

  1. We even add finely choped carrot and finely chopped tomato.

    And if the consistency of the cutlet is too loose or watery, adding plain oatmeal or breadcrubs to the mix will make it thick :)
