Fish Koftas Recipe

Fish Koftas Recipe

Ingredients : Makes about 60 pieces of fish koftas

425 g canned mackerel

500 g floury potatoes

1 large onion, chopped very finely

1 large egg, beaten

3 slices white sandwich bread

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon dried dill weed

3 teaspoons finely chopped fresh red chilies, seeded

Dry breadcrumbs for coating

Oil for deep frying

 

 

Method :

Thoroughly drain the canned fish with a sieve. Remove as much liquid as possible. Heat up a pot with water and boil the floury potatoes. Mash while still hot to obtain the same weight as the drained fish. Mix them together in a bowl with the egg, onion, white bread trimmed of the crust, seasoning, dill and chilies. Mix thoroughly and shape into 60 small balls. Roll each ball in the dry breadcrumbs and fry a few at a time in deep hot oil over medium heat. When browned, lift out on a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper. These fish koftas can be prepared ahead and frozen in a zipper bag when cool. Before serving, just reheat in a moderate oven.
