Step 1

Take a vessel and put fish pieces, chopped ginger, onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, turmeric powder and required salt.

Step 2

Pour 1/2 cup water into the fish pieces and boil. Simmer in medium heat.

After the fish pieces are cooked, sieve and collect the fish stock. Crush the cooked fish. Keep the stock aside.

For preparing ground mixture, grind turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, garlic, ginger, shallots, pepper powder and cummin seeds. Keep this ground mixture aside.

Step 5

Into the cooked and roughly crushed fish pieces, add yolk of one egg, crushed bread slice, pepper powder, maida and oil. Mix together and make small lime sized balls.
