Fish Cutlets/Fish Patties(Shallow Fry)/Fish Tikki

We love fish cutlet very much. I did fish cutlet lot of times. Some of friends tasted and tried out. This fish cutlets are very easy to do and can be done within minutes. The only prep work is to boil potato and fish fillets. If you have leftover fish fillets, just remove skin and bones. Otherwise steam the fish and remove the skin and the bones. Shred them and set aside. The crisp slight sweetness from the bread crumb crust was something I really loved. You also give a try and enjoy it.
