Fried Tuna Cutlets

Fried stuffs are so good when eaten "hot-hot" - fry up and serve up. Here we have spicy tuna cutlets - a side dish for rice or as finger food.  Made with canned tuna, potato and spices. Very easy. In fact the easiest I would say. Add all the ingredients including oil from tuna chunk, mix, shape and fry.

1 can (about 180g) tuna chunks in olive oil
1 (about 90g) potato - boiled and mashed
1 red chilli - sliced thinly
3 shallots - chopped
1/2 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 for deep frying 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.

  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!
