I know that of late , I have been cooking recipes from Wendy's blog - Table for 2 Or More :) Actually I was looking for simple to cook from her blog and thus bookmarked a few and this tuna potato cake is one of the recipes I wanted to try out. I was not disappointed, easy and no fuss at all. Best of all it tasted so good . Wild Boar wanted it hot , so I added a few bird's eye chillies and spring onions to the mixture...wow, it was tasty and hot. This is another simple recipe with no fuss at all. Read on for the recipe............
These finger food would be great for parties . I will make this for my cell group meeting. What more , I can whip it up in just under 30 mins. Savory snack such as this will be a hit with the older adults. For the kids you can take Wendy's original recipe which is without chilli :)
I like it becdause the preparation is no fuss and doesn't need much washing to the relief of Wild Boar. For the past two weeks, he has taken over the washing :p That is what the other half if for...right? :) Anyway, I am glad that I found this recipe and it will be a keeper for sure. Great finger food and also serve as a dish itself. You can dip it with the Thai Chilli Sauce or wasabi if you want it more hot. But for me, the level of hot is perfect with the bird's eye chillies I added.
love the egg-y and tuna fragrance from this tuna potato cake

Bring a saucepan of water to boil and put in potato cubes. Simmer for 3 mins. Check if potatoes are cooked, but not mushy. Drain.
Place flaked tuna and drained potatoes into a bowl. Put in chillies, spring onion ,salt, pepper and cornstarch. Mix well.
Use clean hands, place 1/2 tbsp of potato mixture onto palms and shape into a patty. Place on a plate. Repeat until potato mixture is finished. You can stack the patties, they wont't stick to each other.
Heat oil for frying. When oil is ready, dip 1 patty into beaten egg and place carefully into hot oil. Fry both sides until golden. Dish up and drain.
Enjoy and have a nice day :)
