Cutlets

Cutlets come in either round or oval shapes. They are traditionally made with fish but can be vegetarian as well. The main ingredient that keeps the cutlet’s shape is potato mash mixed with spices and the desired protein. Inexpensive fish cutlet will use canned mackerel, while the more expensive kind will use canned tuna. The little balls or ovals are moulded by hand, then breaded and fried. They are very popular at parties and when drinking alcohol. Another popular variation is the mutton cutlet.

Fish Rolls

Fish rolls or Chinese rolls are one of the finger food that available in Sri Lanka.  Its so simple to make . The advantage is you can make a larger batch and freeze them for future use. But… remember to thaw completely  before frying  them. If not that can split in oil. Instead of fish you can add any filling. If you like this in the oven than deep frying add a bit more butter (Doubling the amount of butter in the batter)  in to it. The other way is crumbing the rolls with panko crumbs and spraying oil well before baking. Don’t expect the same results as frying anyway. But it is much healthier.
