Thai Fish Cakes

So its just 5 more days to the start of a fresh new year, and everyone has some plans for their New Year’s eve! Well, if you are the one having all the guests over, this is the perfect appetizer to serve! This party snack will definitely be a hit as it looks scrumptious, is really quick to make and tastes wonderful. And the best part? Who doesn’t love Thai cuisine?!  This might sound complicated but if you have all the ingredients, all you need is to put everything into a food processor, let it do the work, fry them and serve for the most delicious Asian taster!  PS: Happy New Year to all my readers and happy cooking! 😉

Ingredients :
400 gms skinless white flesh fish fillets ( deboned )
1-2 tablespoon fish sauce
1 large egg
Fresh coriander
Red Curry paste ( 1-2 tablespoon )
6-8 garlic pods
1 inch cube of ginger
Juice of 1 lime
Some garlic powder ( If you feel the need )
2-3 spring onions
Salt to taste
Red chili powder ( as per preference )
Oil for shallow frying.

Directions :
Finely chop the ginger and garlic or use a food processor to do the job. ( Oh it kinda rhymed ! )

With this, add the fish fillets, roughly chopped green onions, lime juice, fish fillets, Thai Red Curry paste, Coriander leaves, the egg, Fish sauce, Salt and chilli powder ( Garlic powder too if you require to ) into the food processor. Basically you just need to add all your ingredients to the blender. See how simple it is! And then let the food processor do the rest of the work.
 You will get something like this with a paste like consistency. Apply some oil to your hands and make round patties out of it. Meanwhile, heat oil in a nonstick pan for shallow frying the patties.
 Shallow fry these patties until golden brown on each side and properly cooked from inside.
And you’re all done with the cooking part. Now have a bite and reward yourself with the deliciousness!  Garnish with some coriander leaves and spring onions and serve with some sweet chili sauce as a dip! Happy New Year once again from !
