This is a very tasty snack I found in one of my recipe books from 70s. It is easy to cook too. My family likes this snack very much especially my husband. For children who eat fatty snacks, this is a very good alternative. Here is the recipe.

Fish – 500 gms. Use fish with very less bones. I use Salmon.
Boiled Potato – 200 gms (1/3 of Fish)
Onion – 1 finely chopped
Pepper Powder – 1tbsp
Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tbsp
GingerĀ  – 2cms – finely chopped
Chillies – 2 or 3 – depending upon your taste. finely chopped.
Curry leaves – few – finely chopped
Salt – according to taste
Egg – only white.
Bread Crums
Oil to fry

Cooking Procedure:

  • Boil fish in water until cooked. Take it out from hot-water & remove the skin. Now smash it in a bowl like the image below. Make sure that all bones are removed.

    Boiled Fish

  • Peel skin from boiled potatos and add it to fish like below.
  • Now add chopped onions, chopped ginger, pepper powder, turmeric powder & salt. This will look like the image below.
  • Now mix it well & make them into cutlet form. I made round balls. You can make it into flat round size or any other shape you like.
  • Beat egg white well. It should look like this.
  • Take bread crumbs in a plate.
  • Now you are ready for frying. Heat oil.
  • When oil is heated well, dip fish ball in egg first & then in bread crums & put it in oil.
  • Fry it for 1-2 mins until it turns golden brown. Note that fish & potatos are already cooked. So don’t keep it for long time in oil.
  • Keep this on kitchen paper so that any excess oil in cutlet is sucked immediately.
  • Now you are ready to server it with or without ketchup or chutney.
