Goans love to have something extra special in their meal. By this I mean, if they have fish curry, rice and a vegetable side, they would find it incomplete without a little piece fried fish or a little prawn Balchao ( Recipe for both coming up soon) You know that something in the plate that rounds out the meal and ensures you have all the possible tastes and textures going on :)
This is one of those dishes. I love making them because they are very versatile. You can fry them off smaller too and serve them with pre dinner drinks or just as a snack. They are nice and crispy on the outside and moist and meaty on the inside. If you are a fish lover, you will LOVE this recipe!
You can make these with Tuna, as I have, or with Mackerel (I don't have the patience for de-boning those). Tinned fish works too, though you would have to drain off all the oil/water.
I hope you like this one and try it. Enjoy!
