Tuna Cutlets

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

These tuna cutlets are a perfect choice  to go with some plain white rice and some some tangy lentil soup on a grey winter afternoon. When served to guests over a dinner party, these would get a lot of attention, as they look cute and taste delicious.  Increase the spice level or or decrease it, add an ingredient in a bigger quantity or skip any completely.  However you choose to make it, you will love to make it over and over again.
