Spicy Tuna Cutlets


1 can of tuna flakes in water
4 potatoes (boiled and mashed)
1 large onion (chopped fine)
5 bird eye chilli (chopped fine)
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp of garam masala powder
1 large egg (beaten and add 2 tbsp of water)
1 tbsp of lemon/lime juice
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

In a bowl add potatoes, tuna flakes (drain out the water), lemon/lime juice, onions, chilli, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, salt and mix everything  until it does not stick to your hands. Leave the mixture to set aside for at least 30 minutes.

Heat oil and maintain on medium flame, roll the tuna mixture into small balls and flatten slightly, keep aside. Dip the prepared cutlets in the egg mixture then fry to golden brown and drain on a kitchen towel. Now our Spicy Tuna Cutlets are ready to be served,best eaten with plain rice and kaara kuzhambu or as snacks dipped in ketchup.
