Sweet childhood memories of my little sister and I making these cutlets with our ginormous chef hats on! 😊
My little sister’s contribution to the recipe was adding exactly 3 granules of sugar without which the recipe would be a total and utter failure 😂
Let’s make this delicious cutlets together! Without the sugar granules! (Sorry sis! 😂😘🤷‍♀️)



  1. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of oil to a pan set on medium heat
  2. Add fish pieces into the pan
  3. Sprinkle half a teaspoon of salt and turmeric powder on the fish and mix well
  4. Add 5 to 6 tablespoons of water (Don’t add too much water, you will have to discard the water and it will dilute the taste of the fish)
  5. Place the lid on and let the fish cook for 3 to 5 minutes
  6. Place the lid on and let the fish cook for 3 to 5 minutes
  7. Take the fish pieces out in a bowl and add boiled potato pieces
  8. Mash the potatoes and the fish with a fork or a masher
  9. Keep it aside
  10. To a grinder jar add chopped coriander leaves, mint leaves, garlic cloves, green chilli, and ginger
  11. Grind this to a coarse paste and add this into the bowl with the fish and the mashed potatoes
  12. Add coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, black pepper powder, fresh lime juice and half a teaspoon of salt. Mix well
  13. Add a drop of oil on your palms and grease them
  14. Take some of the cutlet mixture and make a fist with it. Check if its firm enough to hold shape
  15. If not add some powdered breadcrumbs, mix well and test again
  16. Once the mixture is firm enough, they’re ready for making cutlets
  17. Take one egg in a bowl and beat well
  18. Add 1 tablespoon of water to the egg and mix
  19. Add half a cup of powdered bread crumbs on a plate
  20. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour to it
  21. Mix well
  22. Oil your palms again
  23. Make round balls with the cutlet mix
  24. Dip it in the egg wash and coat it with the breadcrumbs
  25. Make little disc like shapes with the ball and dip it in breadcrumbs again
  26. Take a flat nonstick pan. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and 1 teaspoon of butter
  27. Spread the butter evenly
  28. Fry the cutlets till they are golden brown and crisp on both sides. This should take 5 to 6 minutes
  29. Once the cutlets are done, sprinkle them with chaat masala
  30. Sandwich with the cutlets

  31. I used English muffins but you can use any bread
  32. Let’s make a spread for the sandwich: In a bowl take 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, half a teaspoon of red chilli sauce, half a teaspoon of green chilli sauce, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped coriander leaves, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped red onions, a squeeze of lime juice, some salt and pepper. Mix well
  33. Make a yummy sandwich with the cutlets and this spread!
