Fish Cutlet or Machher Chop

Fish Recipe- Maccher Chop-Fish cutlet
Fish 'n' Chips

This is a favorite bengali snack….I learnt this recipe from my elders. In India we make various types of cutlets( with cooked mutton, fish or chicken). Fish cutlets are cooked with chopped onion, garam masala, green chillies and sometimes boiled potato is also mixed. Most of the Indian houses have their own recipe for cutlets. 
Lets start so that you can make fish cutlets at home easily


Fish 400 gms( I took rohu fish, any type of fish is fine)
Potato 1 large( boiled)
Onion 1 large (finely chopped)
Ginger/garlic paste 1 tablespoon
Turmeric powder 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder 1 teaspoon 
Red Chilly powder 1/2 teaspoon or 2 to 3 chopped green chillies
Garam Masala Powder 1/2 teaspoon
Cornflour 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Egg 1( beaten and kept aside)
Breadcrumbs 1 to 2 cup 
Oil for deep frying

Fish Recipe
Fish Cutlet


Wash the fish properly. 
Boil and cook the fish with salt and turmeric powder.
Cool and de-bone them. Mash the fish with the boiled potato.
Now add chopped onion, ginger/garlic paste and mix well. 
Then add the dry masalas, salt and cornflour. 
Mash and mix well.
Now make small round balls of the cutlet mixture and shape into patties. 
You can make round, oval, heart shaped etc.
Now keep the patties in the refrigerator for 10 min.
Take them out and dip the patties in the beaten egg, coat it with breadcrumbs and fry.
If you want to avoid frying then bake them. 
If frying then fry both sides till golden.
Serve with chips, green chutney or ketchup.
