Recipe: Thai inspired tuna fish cake

 Made with whatever I have in hand, this is not the authentic Thai fish cake.

Type: Side/snack
Servings: 2 or more
Category: Halal

1 can of tuna
2 cloves garlic
1 piece ginger
1 red chili
2 stalk chopped spring onion
3 kafir lime leaves
A handful of coriander
2 teaspoon fish sauce
2 tablespoon curry paste
2 eggs
2 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoon flour

1. Drain tuna and flake them in a bowl. Make sure your tuna is completely dry. Traditionally Thai use white fish.

2. Mince garlic, grate ginger, slice spring onion, mince coriander, finely chop chili and kafir lime leaves.

3. Add all the herbs and curry paste into the tuna. You may add green beans if you have. Usually Thai will grind in blender at this stage before adding green beans but I was lazy to take out my blender and clean it.

4. Season with salt, pepper, a little sugar and fish sauce. I only agak-agak in this recipe.

5. Add eggs to bind. I also added cornstarch to make them crispy and flour to thicken because I did not blend into thick consistency.

6. Add generous amount of oil onto pan. When it's heated, add tuna patties. You can shape the patties into circles but being lazy, I just scooped with spoon onto pan.

7. Fry for 3-4 minutes or till brown then turn to the other side and done!
