Spicy Fish Koftas

1 tin Tuna
3 medium size potatoes (boiled)
1 large onion chopped fine
2 green chillies chopped fine
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground pepper
2 springs of mint leaves chopped fine
1 sprig curry leaves chopped fine
1 egg yolk
Oil for frying
2 eggs beaten
Breadcrumbs for coating


1. Drain fish very thoroughly and get rid of any skin and flake the fish. Remove skin from potatoes and mash it well.

2. In a bowl mix together, the fish, potatoes, chopped onions, chopped green chillies, salt, ground pepper, chopped mint leaves and curry leaves and egg yolk.

3. Once it is mixed thoroughly, shape into small balls, dip each ball in the beaten egg and then roll it in the bread crumbs.

4. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan. The oil should be very hot and then fry the koftas a few at a time quickly. When nicely browned lift them out with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper and serve.
