Cutlets


A well loved savoury snack for tea time or any time :)

1 tin mackeral
2 boiled potatoes
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp onion

curry leaves

1 tsp lime or lemon juice
1/2 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp corriander powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
pinch turmeric

batter
1 egg

2 to 3 tbsp water

bread crumbs
oil

Heat oil add onions, well chopped curry leaves, ginger garlic paste, fish pieces and the spices. Cook until the spices are blended. Add the potatoes, lemon juice and mash everything together and cook for a minute. Adjust seasoning. There is no water added so keep moving the ingredients with a spoon. Remove from heat and cool. Make balls any size I made 1 1/2" diameter balls. Leave aside to dip in the batter.
Beat flour, egg and water to make a pourable batter to dip the fish balls. Coat bread crumbs and deep fry in about 2 inches of oil till golden brown evenly in all sides.
Instead of using tinned fish I sometimes use
king fish or soft fish fillets without bones.

Going Japanese



The presentation of Japanese cuisine is very pleasing to the eye, when I started to enjoy sushi from take-outs I learned and researched on sushi. It took several attempts to make the rice the way we enjoyed and to roll the sushi. Every time I make it we try using different ingredients to roll the sushi.

Sushi rice
1 cup sticky rice
4 tbsp rice vinegar
3 to 4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cup water

Wash the rice and make the rice with 1 2/3 cup water and salt in the rice cooker.
Heat rice vinegar and sugar until the sugar is dissolved add the hot mixture to the cooled rice and mix.

Ingredients to place inside the sushi
fish roe
imitation crab
avocado I prefer spreading it as a paste
carrots cut like a long thin stick
cucumbers discard the inner seeds and cut into thin sticks
roasted seaweed

To serve
wasabi
pickled ginger
soya sauce
Prepare the sushi mat with cling film all around it so there is no need to clean the rice that goes in between the mat.

Lay the roasted seaweed or nori the rough side up on a sushi mat and put about 3 tbsp rice and spread with a flat spoon or hands leave about 1" of the top of the seaweed without rice. It is easier to handle the sticky rice if hands are wet, so place a bowl of water to dip the hands and spread the rice.
Place ingredients that are thinly cut in the middle of the sushi and roll tight. Keep all the rolls aside. Then cut 1" rolls and serve with wasabi, pickled ginger and soya sauce.
