Macher Chops/Tuna Chops

Fish Chops/Macher Chops

Ingredients For Macher Chops:
Tuna Canned: 2 cans of 7 OZ each of Chunk Light Tuna
Onions: 1 medium sized chopped very fine
Garlic & Ginger : 1 tbsp each
Green chili: 2 chopped very fine
Grated Nutmeg: A pinch
salt : 1 tsp
Garam Masala: 8-10 peppercorns,3-4 cloves, green cardamoms 2-4,Cinnamon Stick 1 inch. Roast all these and pound them or grind in a coffee grinder.
Egg: 1 small sized egg
Bread crumbs: 1 small bowl 


Take the tuna out of the can and discard the water and take the fish in a mixing bowl.
Add all the above ingredients and mix them well with a spoon or use hands.
Make golf sized balls and flatten them a little between your palms and coat them with bread crumbs.

You have two options:

Healthy : You can shallow fry these on a griddle.
Deep frying: You can deep fry them .

Note: I have tried both and I prefer the shallow fried ones.they taste equally good,so I avoid the deep frying. I serve them with green chutney or tamarind date chutney.

  1. Kavita's Mcaher Chop was delicious last time, when we had it as evening snack. In addition to its own unique taste, it reminded me of shami kababs from back home.
