my healthy multigrain soup is a routine breakfast now n i am feeling very good about it ....i will keep posting updates on this routine of mine and how i am making changes with this basic recipe.........here i have used cluster beans with other veggies and it tastes simply yum.......some of my real life friends have also started on this soup and they are satisfied with the results........
Now coming to the fish cutlet recipe which a very simple healthy recipe tooi have replaced the coating of breadcrumbs with semolina which gives a nice crust and absorbs very little oil while frying.......
to make 6 cutlets
fish fillets or pieces of any muscular fish 250 gm
ginger , garlic and green chillies 2 tbsp each or more
( chopped finely and not grated or ground as it gives a nice bite in the cutlets)
salt to taste
black pepper powder 1 tbsp
boiled mashed potato 1 no.
lemon juice 1 tbsp
semolina 3-4 tbsp
oil to shallow fry( i used 1 tbsp to fry six cutlets)
first of all poach the fish pieces with a little amount of water in a covered pan....i just microwaved the fish , it is so much easier.
now debone the fish pieces when cool enough to handle and mix the flesh with all the other ingredients except oil and semolina.
shape cutlets in whatever shape you like and press each of them on a bed of semolina spread over a plate
heat oil in a flat bottomed pan.i used an iron kadhai used for making jalebis.....arrange all the cutlets and fry on very low flame till crisp on the bottom side....
turn and fry on the other side too .........till crisp and brown...........
and serve hot with chutny as a starter or on the side........
and to make the tomato peanut chutny ..........just microwave a big ripe tomato and grind it with a fat clove of garlic, 2 whole red chillies, a tbsp of roasted peanut and salt to taste......ready in a minute.
