2 weeks back got a message in sauté, fry n bake from grace Joseph of taxsas asking me for a healthy recipe for tuna fish cutlet Without useing potatoes and shallow frying instead baking . Broke my head over this message . Squeezed out my brains to come up with a healthy recipe . The word healthy to me relates to fruits and veggies . The next thing is wheat so instead of potato I substituted wheat bread , but has to be tasty also and the consistency should resemble potato . Soak the bread in water and squeeze out but taste again will be missing . Then I substituted water with salted butter milk . Followed the recipe as I do for normal fish cutlets but used egg whites instead of whole egg to dip the cutlets and rolled them in wheat bread crumbs seasoned with herbs , salt and pepper . Olive oil sprayed it and baked it . Worked wonders . Tasted so yum and was healthy too . Thanks grace Joseph to have asked me for a recipe as such . Other wise my brain is restricted towards diet recipes . (Not bad my brain is still alert and working a bit . )
