  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 can tuna (170g) drained
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 to 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Oil for deep-frying
  • salt and pepper to taste



Step 1

Boil potatoes in a pot of water. When they become soft, peel off skin and mash them.

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a pan. Fry onions and garlic until lightly browned. Add tuna, salt, pepper, chilli powder and curry powder, and toss well. Add mash potatoes and mix well.

Roll the tuna mixture into patties. Coat each patty with breadcrumbs, dip into beaten egg and roll again in breadcrumbs.

Heat oil for deep-frying until it's almost smoking. Fry croquettes in batches until they turn golden brown. Lower heat if they brown too soon. Drain croquettes on paper towels and serve hot with tomato or chilli sauce.
