Fish Croquette

My mother-in-law, Reba Mukerjee loves fish and this is one of her fish-delicacies which she learnt from her mother

  • fish (preferably rohu) : 250 gms (makes 12 pcs)
  • onion (finely chopped) : 1 cup
  • garlic (finely chopped) : 2 tsp
  • ginger (grated) : 2 tsp
  • green chillies (finely chopped) : 2 tsp
  • tomatoes (finely chopped) : 3 tsp
  • carrot (grated) : 1/2 cup
  • capsicum (finely chopped) : 1/2 cup
  • lemon juice : 1 tsp
  • salt and sugar, turmeric powder (to taste)
  • 2 eggs : well beaten
  • refined oil : 250 ml
  • garam masala
  • bread crumb

Marinate the fish with salt, a pinch of turmeric powder, and lemon juice for 15 minutes. Boil the fish, with just the right quantity of water, till there is no more water left in the vessel. De-bone the fish using your hands. Keep aside. Fry the onions in 2 tsp refined oil, till golden brown in a wok. Add the garlic, the ginger, the green chillies, and then fry for 5 minutes. Now add the finely chopped tomato, and the grated carrot, and finally the capsicum. Finally Add the de-boned fish. Saute for 5 minutes. Add 2 tsp sugar, salt (to taste), and a pinch of garam masala. Spread the mixture on the wok so that it gets completely dried.
Now shape the dried mixture in any desired form with your hand, coat them with beaten egg and then with bread crumbs. Fry the croquette in refined oil till brown.

Serve as an evening snacks with salad.
