  1. Heat oil in a frying pan and saute the onions until soft and golden. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a minute until aromas are released.
  2. Add the spices and fry until you can really smell them. Bung in the tuna and mix it in letting it heat up gently.
  3. Put the tuna mixture in with the mashed potatoes and mix well.
  4. Add the lemon juice, fresh coriander and green chillies, if using, and mix thoroughly. Taste the mixture at this point, it should be tangy from the lemon and perfumed with coriander. Adjust if required along with seasoning.
  5. Roll into patties, coat in beaten egg and roll in breadcrumbs. Can even be double coated which gives a fantastic crunch.
  6. Fry in oil until evenly golden brown.
