Indian Fish Cakes

Make as you read: for easy cooking and easy blogging


Wash 2-3 boneless fish fillets ( fish of your choice ) – I used rohu fish ,an eastern India delicacy (Rohu has bones and hence took the extra effort of removing bones from it , but worth the taste)

Heat a pan and add 1 tbsp oil

Shallow fry the fish fillets till golden brown (3-4 mins each side should do) and keep aside

Prepare the following :

Finely chop – onions,2-3 green chillies,some ginger, 6-7 garlic pods and make 1 tbsp mint paste ( I used Colman’s mint sauce), 2 tbsp lime juice

crumble/Mash the fish in a large bowl and add all the above to it including lime juice

You will also need to add some spices  to make it yummy: Crushed pepper powder,salt to taste,1 tsp cumin powder,1 tsp coriander powder,1 tsp chilli powder,half cup bread crumbs (bread crumbs are to make the mixture less soggy, so decide on quantity based on the water content of the mixture) and 2 eggs (add egg at last)

Add all the above to the bowl and make a fish mixture (TIP: add egg in the end so that you can taste the mixture for salt and spice)

Place foil on a grilling tray and brush it with a little oil or butter

Use the mixture to make several small 2 inch wide flat balls as shown below

Drizzle some olive oil on the fish cakes (just a drop on each)

Place it in the oven at around 170F for about 10 mins (turn once in 5mins) or till golden brown,remember the fish is already cooked we just need to slightly brown these , so the fish cakes are not dry and moisture content is intact

Serve them with mint/coriander raita, sliced onions and jalapeno!!

Enjoy and let me know if you liked it!
