For the patties:
1.Cod fish - 1 big piece
2.Turmeric powder - a pinch
3,Onion - 1/2
4.Green chillies - 2
5.Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
5.a Chilli pwder - 1/4 tsp or as required
6.Cooked rice - 3 tbsp
7.Bread crumbs - 2 tbsp or as required
8.Oil - 2 tbsp
9.Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
10.Salt - to taste
For the sandwitch:
1.Fish patties - 2
2.Wheat bread slices - 2
3.Cheese slices - 2
4.Dressing - Ketchup or ranch
* Cook the cod fish with turmeric powder and salt with little water.
* Discard the water and shred the fish.
* Take a pan,add oil and splutter with mustard seeds.
* Add chopped onion and green chillies,when the onion is translucent,add ginger garlic paste.
* Now add chilli pwdr and give it a a toss.
* Cool the mixture completely.
* Add the shredded fish into the pan and mix it with chopped cilantro,bread crumbs and cooked rice.
* You should be able to form the mixture into a ball,that is the right consistancy.
* If you feel the patties are not firm enough,either you can add some mor bread crumbs or refreigerate the patties for an hour.This will make the patties firm.
* Form into patties using any cookie cutter.
* Heat a tawa and cook the patties with very little oil on both the sides.
* For making it fun,cut the bread slices ,cheese into heart shape.
* Take a heart shaped bread slice,apply ketchup or ranch ,place the cheese,fish patties and cover them with another bread slice.
* Arrange them and serve it.Kids will surely enjoy this sandwitch.
* The other way to prepare patties is,just prepare the fish masala,give a egg wash and coat it with bread crumbs.
* We can prepare the un cooked patties in advance and freeze it.While preparing the sandwitches,thaw the patties and cook them.
* We can also place some lettucein between.
* Since,kids eat less spice,I have added very little spices.I f you want,you can alter the masala according to your taste.
