Method

 

 

Crab meat

 

 

1. Cook the potatoes until completely done and tender. Mash well and keep aside. (You can cook them in a pressure cooker, adding enough water for 1 whistle. Peel off the skin and mash well.)

2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan or cheena chatti at medium heat. Add chopped onion, ginger, garlic and green chilies. Saute until onion turns light brown. Add the spice powders numbered 4. Saute until their raw smell is gone. Add the crab meat. Mix well and cook for 4 – 5 minutes or until dry. Add the mashed potato and enough salt. Mix well. Stir for about 2 – 3 minutes. Switch off and set aside. When it cools down, make small balls out of it. Flatten the balls to desired shapes. Dip them in beaten egg-white and then in bread crumbs. Deep or shallow fry in oil until golden brown. Serve with tomato ketchup or onion salad.

Tips

  1. You can store the flattened balls dipped in egg white and bread crumbs for 2 – 3 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to two months.
  2. Add more of mashed potato or bread crumbs/maida if the cutlet breaks while frying or if it doesn’t hold shape.
