Cod Fish Cutlets

I love the taste of Cod Fish. If you have ever tasted the Fish Burger at Mc D's I guess this is the fish they use in it. I prefer using fish fillet's to make these cutlets.You cud choose to use any fish of your choice.

Fish Fillet of ur Choice (I used Cod Fish Fillet)
Salt as per taste
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Green Chillies 3-5 small (can be altered depending on your taste)
Water to boil /Steam fish
Potato 1 boiled & mashed
Cilantro small bunch
Spring Onions 1 Bunch or 1 big onion
1 tsp Garam Masala powder
Red Chillie Powder 1 tsp
Egg 1 whisked
Lemon /Lime Juice 1 tsp
Bread Crumbs for coating
Oil for Frying

Season the fillet with some salt, turmeric & slit a couple of green chillies & steam it.Once done I let the fish cool & then mash it in a bowl with a potato masher. To this I add 1 onion diced into tiny pieces ( you cud alternately use a bunch of sping onions), ginger garlic paste, mashed potato, couple of finely chopped green Chillies ,Cilantro, Red Chillie powder, Garam Masala powder, salt as per taste & a dash of Lemon/Lime juice.Then I form small cutlets , dip it in a bowl of whisked egg & rolled it in bread crumbs.Lastly shallow fry these in a pan till golden brown &
walah its done !! You can serve this with Mint Chutney or Ketchup .
