TUNA HEARTS

If you are looking for an easy snack for unexpected guests i have just the solution for you!! With a few ingredients you can make the most awesome tuna cutlets. I shaped them into hearts with the help of a cookie cutter but you can make them into small flat rounds, or rolls. These just need a little care while frying and i shall give you all the tips.
INGREDIENTS:
2 small cans of tuna, drained very well
1 big potato, boiled and mashed
2 tablespoons of finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon each of finely chopped coriander leaves and green chillies
a pinch each of Nitu Didi turmeric and cumin powder
salt to taste
1 small egg, beaten slightly
breadcrumbs if needed, i did not put
METHOD:
mix the mashed potato with the tuna and all the ingredients except for the breadcrumbs. Leave in the fridge to harden a bit for an hour. Shape into desired shape and deep fry in hot oil.
PLEASE NOTE : if the mixture is too soft (this happens due to the potato quality) then do add a bit of breadcrumbs.
While frying if the tuna cutlet breaks add some breadcrumbs. Do take care that the oil is hot… frying in  improperly heated oil causes the cutlets to break and to soak up a lot of oil.
These can also be shallow fried…but if you bake them in the oven you wont get a crispy effect
Serve with chutney or sauce of your choice
