Fish Tikki / Fish Cakes

We had some friends visiting from India staying with us last week . We had a lovely time them with lots sightseeing and shopping . Though i cooked a lot but didn't get a chance to click many pictures or sit on my computer to post anything but now back to my daily routine. I had some pan fried halibut (fish) chop left over from previous day's dinner so thought of using it up for an snack and prepared this tikki.

Pan fried fish flaked - 1 cup , ( i used halibut but any fish or even canned tuna will be good)
Potato - 1/2 cup , boiled and mashed 
Green Onion - 1/4 cup , chopped fine 
Green Chilli - 2 tsp , chopped fine
Ginger - 1 1/2 tsp , chopped fine
Coriander Leaves - 2 tbsp
Breadcrumbs - 1 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste

1. Mix flaked fish, potato , 2 tbsp breadcrumbs, onion, chilli , ginger, coriander leaves and salt.
2. And take a golf ball size mixture in hand and form a tikki ( pattie ).
3. Roll in bread crumbs and keep aside.
4. Heat a heavy bottom skillet and add 2 tbsp oil.
5. Place a few tikkis (patties) in the skillet and cook on both sides till golden.
5. Everything is already cooked so each side will hardly take 2-3 minutes to brown.
7. Serve hot with any sauce of choice and lemon wedges.
