Tuna Cutlets

Tuna Cutlets and these are the fried ones? Doesn't it sound cracking crunchy and munchy? Alright, alright. I hear you. Fried food is not the best food (Malaysian Fried Mee & Valakkai Chips), I know. Then again, like I always tell you, nothing will hurt our healthiness, shape and size if its a once a while food tucking? Of course not. Believe me. After all, we can't be over health conscious right? No, we shouldn't because even those who watch their diet like a hawk (Fried Kembung Assam Sauce), sometimes kick the bucket earlier than all of us? So, instead of further debating on frying (Chinese Prawn Fritters, Fried Shrimp Wantons, Fried Lotus Root & Fried Crab Sticks), lets just right now get down to making these fried tuna cutlets. Canned tuna, potato, spices, curry leaves and the rest of the ingredients listed below all tossed, turned, stirred and shaped up shapely or unshapely, prior to into oil frying. 

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.


  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!

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
