Fish Cakes


Fish Cakes:
1 pound of white fish such as Tilapia or Cod chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 tsp of Maani’s Chicken Tandoori Spice Blend
2 cloves of garlic chopped
2 Tbsp of chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp of chopped parsley
2 slices of white or wheat bread toasted
salt and pepper to taste
1 large egg beaten
2 Tbsp of Canola Oil

1 14 ounce can of chopped tomatoes
1 small onion chopped
1 green chili chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
1 tsp of Maani’s Chicken Tikka Masala
Spice Blend
1 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp of Canola Oil
31⁄2 cup of water


  1. To make the tomato sauce, heat the canola oil in a medium sized fry pan and sauté the onion, green chili and garlic until golden brown approx.
    8 minutes. Then add Maani’s Spice Blend, sugar, salt and pepper and the can of chopped tomatoes. Add in the water and mix together well
    and let simmer until the fish cakes are cooked.
  2. To make the fish cakes, put the bread in the toaster oven to brown. Then pulse toasted bread in a food processor or tear into small pieces.
  3. Chop the fish into tiny pieces or give it a rough chop into small pieces and add into a mixing bowl with the torn bread. Add in the chopped
    onion, egg, garlic, cilantro, parsley, salt and pepper and Maani’s Spice Blend. Mix everything together nicely; if too liquidy then add store
    bought bread crumbs or panko to bind together and shape into round patties.
  4. In another fry pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Working in batches, fry each patty for 4 min per side until golden brown. Then arrange
    the cooked fish cakes into the tomato sauce and cover over low heat for a few minutes to let the flavors sit together and enjoy!
