Fish Cutlets/Fish Cutlets Recipe

Great as a starter or Appetizer these fish cutlets are sure to please a crowd . A treat for Fish lovers you could serve them with sauce or any dip you wish to .Goes very well with Dal and rice as a side dish.

These Cutlets are easy to make and need very less oil for frying. You could use any fish to make these cutlets .I have used Shark Fish as the meat is soft and it just has one thorn which can be discarded easily.


Shark Fish 3 medium sized after boiling and cleaning i got 2 cups flesh
1 Large onion chopped
1  1/2 tsp gingergarlic paste
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder/haldi
1 tsp cumin powder
Juice of half lime or as needed
1 cup  coriander leaves
1 tbsp mint leaves optional
1 tsp cumin
7 pepper
5 to 6 green chilli finely chopped/as needed
2 bread slices
salt to taste
oil to shallow fry
breadcrumbs to coat

Clean the fish and wash it well.

Boil the fish with salt ,turmeric and water as needed.

Once boiled let it cool ,then discard the thorn and mash it well.
In a pan add little oil and fry the onion till translucent let it cool then add it to the boiled fish.

Now add the ginger ,garlic paste,Garam masala powder ,cumin powder and the chopped green chilli .

Or you could grind together chillies,coriander and mint leaves and then add the paste.I prefer this i grind all this wiyh pepper and cumin to a paste then saute it along with onion and ginger garlic till raw smell goes off.

Mix in the bread slices and mash it well with hands to form a mixture.

Roll it in desired shapes and coat well with bread crumbs.

Cling wrap and store if frying later and keep  it in the fridge or freezer if storing for many days.

Or Shallow fry on all sides on medium flame.

Serve hot with sauce or any dip.

You can either make a paste of ginger garlic chilli cumin pepper and coriander leaves and saute it or add choped chilli and coriander leaves after the onions are sauted.
You can use any fish .
Just moisten the bread slices and squeeze excess water before mixing in .
Adjust salt lime and chilli as per taste.
You can use egg for binding i don't prefer adding eggs to bind fish .
