Basa Fish Smiley


Not only potatoes can smile, fishes can also smile ;)
Yeah ! These smileys are prepared using Basa Fish fillets along with a boiled and mashed potato. The quantity of chilli powder used in this recipe is very less as this is kids friendly one but to make it spicy, include extra 1/2 tsp of chilli powder. The technique of eyes and smile is adapted from one of my co - blogger's webpage ( yummy tummy ). This is a perfect evening or party snack for kids and can be served with tomato sauce.





Ingredients :

1 Big Potato ( which is used for French fries )  
1 Basa Fish Fillet, chopped
1/2 Tsp Chilli powder 
Less then 1/4 Tsp Oregano, dried herb
Salt to taste 
Oil for deep frying 

Method :

Boil potato in a microwave for 10 minutes or pressure cook it for 3 - 4 whistles.

Once done, Peel the skin and grate the boiled potato.

Grind the chopped basa fish to a fine paste and add it to the grated potato.

Add chilli powder followed by oregano and required amount of salt. Mix well.

Add corn flour to the fish - potato mixture and mix well.

Cover it with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins to 1 hour.

Remove from the refrigerator and divide the mixture into equal sized small balls.

Take one ball and flatten gently using palm. ( Apply oil on palm, if the mixture is little sticky ).

Use straw to make two holes ( eyes ) and spoon to shape up a smiley lips.

Repeat the process for the remaining balls and freeze it for 15 - 30 minutes.

Heat sufficient amount of oil for frying and deep fry them in batches till it turns crispy in a medium flame.

Drain the excess oil using kitchen towel and serve hot.
