Fish Patties


Canned tuna fish 200 Gms - water or oil based only.
Onions 1 medium
Green chillies 2
Curry Powder 1 tablespoon - roasted
Potato 100g
Plain flour 200 Gms
Butter 100g
Salt to taste


Mix flour and butter well in a mixer, add water if necessary to make the dough soft and pliable. Set aside for an hour.

Dice onions into small pieces, cut green chillies into small pieces.

Peel, clean, cut and boil potato and marsh coarsely, set aside.

Fry the onion in little oil and add green chillies and fry further until soft.

Add curry powder, tuna and stir and cook on low fire until raw smell of curry powder disappears.

Add mashed potatoes and stir to make a smooth mixture and set aside.

Add salt to taste.

Green chillies are added to add flavour and you can omit if you do not like them.

Take lime sized dough and flatten in the hands to a round disc and make it into a cup shape. Take care not to make it thin anywhere. It should be the same thickness everywhere.

In the middle, place a spoonful of the tuna mixture, cover and press the edges of the dough disc together to seal firmly to form a semi lunar shape. Press with a fork to get a serrated edge

Deep fry this on both sides in hot oil until golden brown. Drain and remove.

Serve with: sauce or on its own. Use as a snack
