Tuna, Potato and Sweet Corn patties

Being Assamese, hubby and I tend to eat a lot of fish. Back home, we get a variety of freshwater fish to choose from but in Gurgaon, we have very limited options.

More recently, owing to health reasons, we have started consuming more of fresh tuna, not the canned ones.

In terms of reducing coronary heart disease, tuna fish has very high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to reduce omega-6 fatty acids and cholesterol in the arteries and blood vessels.

I like the taste of tuna. Usually, I steam or pan-sear the tuna steaks and shred them and stir fry with onions, tomatoes and capsicum with a dash of red wine vinegar and soy sauce. But, then I thought of making it a different way this time so Potato-Tuna-Sweetcorn patties it was!DSC_0035

These patties are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of late afternoon or evening ginger milk tea or adrak chai!DSC_0159

Usually, I tend to have tea with a home-baked cupcake, muffin or a cookie but when I crave for a savoury snack, this is perfect, next to my favourite cheese biscuits!

You may add simply corn in place of the sweet corn variety.

I borrowed this recipe from Home Cooking Adventure.
