Fried Tuna Cutlets

Hi there all you amazing followers of "cook with nava-k"
Can we not talk too much today? Thank you. Sometimes I think its best to shut our mouth and allow the rest to talk. Especially those who talk a whole heap of rubbish, no matter what, you can't beat these idiots. They just expect you to believe and agree with them. And I know how difficult it is listening to their crab. We also know that we can't put a single cent into their brains. So, let them talk and we shall eat. How about that? Great deal right? Thank you. What are we making today? Fried goodies!! Yeh! Always a pleasure, I've already shared some recipes (Fried Prawn Fritters, Rice Vadai, Curry Leaves Valakkai Poriyal, Fried Lotus Root Chips & Fried Prawn Wonton). This fried tuna is made from canned tuna, potato, spices and curry leaves. Mix up, fry up and crunch up-up and away. Okay, I'll see you next time.

1 can (about 180g) tuna chunks in olive oil
1 (about 90g) potato - boiled and mashed
1 red chilli - sliced thinly
3 shallots - chopped
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/2 tbsp fish curry powder
2 sprigs curry leaves - shredded
1 egg
1/2 tbsp corn flour
Salt and pepper for taste
Oil for frying
Add all the ingredients except oil into a bowl.
Crumble, mix and combine together.  
Scoop little by little or shape using a spoon and deep fry.
Remove and drain off excess oil.

Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  1. ooo sound so easy. Hubi likes to order this when go Kanna. But 1 pc was like RM2.

  2. These sound amazing, Nava! I bet they'd be tasty made with chicken!

  3. yes my mum used to cook these asian styled cutlus.. they look like pakoras. yummss !

  4. Yum! What a scrumptious recipe. I love how simple this is too. I'll definitely have to give this a try.

  5. Thank you so much for all the comments. Sometimes I am too lazy to cook anything very elaborated and this cutlets did make my life easy in terms of the time spend in making.

  6. I love tuna and I love deep fried things(although I'm trying to limit them as much as possible). I think I will try your recipe when I'll start eating low-carb again. It looks absolutely perfect. Can we use anything else instead of potato? Like zuchinni for example?

  7. Hi Andreea, I am not sure with zucchini as I have not tried before, maybe you can explore on this and let me know.

  8. Hi, I thought it would be a great idea for those who eat low carb since potatoes have a lot of carbohydrates. I'll try them and come with some feedback on it. Thanks for the comment on my blog!
