Fish and Potato Cutlets

Ingredients

Fresh Fish Fillet …………………… 400 grams; deboned and steamed (or boiled)

Potato ………………………………. 1 medium size; boiled and peeled

Onion …………………………………1 small; finely chopped

Coriander leaves ………………….1/4 cup; finely chopped

Garlic Paste ………………………..11/2 teaspoons

Red chili powder ………………….3/4 teaspoon

Cumin seeds ……………………….1/2 teaspoon ; whole

Dry Mango powder (aamchur)…. a pinch

Black Onion Seeds (kalonji) ……..1/2 teaspoon

White Sesame Seeds………………1/2 teaspoon

Garam masala ………………………1/2 teaspoon

Egg White …………………………….1

Salt  …………………………………..seasoning

Directions

  1. Season the fish fillet and steam the fish using a double boiler for 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  2. Boil the potatoes and remove the skin.
  3. Once the fish and potatoes are cool enough crush them using your hands in separate bowls. Try not to use a food processor for this step so that we can retain the delicate layers of the fish and at the same time get rid of any soft bones that might be embedded within the fillet layers. Fish have different bone structure. So make sure to use one with less bones like the king fish.
  4. Combine the potatoes, fish and all the remaining ingredients and make flat patties. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes in the refrigerator.
  5. Before frying them in a shallow saucepan, dip the patties in the egg white.
  6. Serve warm.
