As a Bengali we just love Fish, sometimes when its snowing or raining outside and we are stuck at home I make this Fish Cutlet to brighten our mood. We enjoy this Recipe as a afternoon snack, with Ginger Tea remembering our good old days back in Kolkata. Any kind of fish like Tilapia, Bass, Carp can be used to make this, I used Whiting Fillets.
Ingredients for the filling: (Fish Cutlet)
- 4 Fish Fillets
- 1 Onion Chopped finely
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1 tbsp Ginger
- Green Chilly
- 1 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
- 1/2 tsp Dhania or Coriander Powder
- 1 tsp Garam Masala Powder
- Few pieces of Cashews and Raisins
- 1 medium sized Potato
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Bread Crumbs
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp of All Purpose Flour or Maida
To make a better outer coating I repeat this process, but this time I use all purpose flour instead of egg white. In a bowl mix 2 tbsp of All Purpose Flour and add about 2 tbsp of water. Then take out the frozen cutlets and dip them in the All Purpose Flour mixture and coat with bread crumb. Refrigerate the Fish Cutlet again, this time around 4 hours.
Whenever you want to try them, deep fry them. If you want to avoid the deep frying, you can even put them in the oven at 350F and broil them.
