Fish Cutlets with Sweet Potato


Boil sweet potatoes in salted water till they are tender. This will take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on their size. Let them air dry and cool before mashing them.

Add lots of finely chopped coriander and green chilies. Season with turmeric, garam masala, ginger garlic paste and salt. Use you hands to mash them really well.

Add chopped seer fish without skin and bones and mix it in using a strong fork.

Shallow fry over medium heat.

Hope you enjoy my ode to the greatest game ever.

Fish Cutlets

Seer fish cut into really small peices and deboned. Also no skin.

Add some ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, besan flour, salt and lemon juice. Then go to work on it with a masher and then a spoon. Lightly drizzle some oil towards the end. Make into cutlets using your palms and let it rest for at least ten minutes.

Shallow fry and serve with some vegetables for a perfect weekend dinner.
