Tuna Kababs make an excellent snack, starter or a side dish. This is a good way to start kids on learning how to eat tuna or disguising it if you find the taste too strong. I will write down the health benefits of eating tuna later. This is a gluten free recipe.
3 cans of tuna, each can about 70-80 grams of tuna , i used one packed in oil, you can use whichever one you want
1/2-3/4 cup of instant mashed potatoes flakes OR you can use boiled and mashed potatoes, but i do not know the quantity
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon of finely grated ginger
2 green chillies chopped fine
2 tablespoons of finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 teaspoon of Nitu Didi Garam Masala
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
oil for deep frying
Flake the tuna and put it in a bowl and add the instant mashed potatoes first adding half cup and mix it well. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Leave in the fridge for about an hour in a covered container. After that check the mixture. If its too soft you can add some more mashed potato flakes. Divide into small balls and roll into kabab shape. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and deep fry them till golden brown and crispy. Serve with any sauce or chutney of your choice
NITU DIDI TIP:
If using boiled and mashed potatoes for this you might need to add less egg. If the mixture is too runny you need to add a binder such as cornstarch. Do make sure the oil is at the right temperature while frying or else they will get too oily. You can also use boiled and flaked fish instead of tuna.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF TUNA:
Tuna is a rich source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids which is essential for us.
