Fish Croquettes

This is a very popular Goan snack, available in most Goan eateries and homes. We use beef, chicken and fish to make them. Today I have used Tuna. I love Tuna, it is versatile and most people like the taste. You can make this with the tinned variety as well, just omit the egg.
I serve these at lunch mostly, with curry and rice. I hope you like this recipe and give it a try. Enjoy!
