Ingredients : 
4 Salmon fillets (you can use any fish,just make sure there are no bones and no skin)

1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder to taste
1/4 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin seeds powder
2 to 3 tablespoons oil

Directions : 
1. First, cook the fish fillets without oil. You can either cook it in a microwave for 4 to 5mins depending upon what fish you are using or you can cook them on a non stick skillet for 4 to 5 minutes on each side without oil.
2. Once the fish is cooked, flake it with a fork and let it cool down completely.
3. After the fish cools down add boiled potatoes,onions,green chillis,cilantro,salt,red chilli powder,garam masala,cumin powder and the lime juice and mix well using your hands.
4. Taste the mixture and add salt or other spices if required.
5. Now add the egg and mix well again.
6. Add the bread crumbs 2 tablespoons at a time and keep mixing.You need not use the complete 1 cup of bread crumbs.Stop when ever you feel its sufficient.You can stop when you are able to make a patty with the mixture.
7. Form patties from the mixture of desired size. 
8. Heat a flat non stick pan on medium high heat and add little oil.
9. Pan fry the patties with a little oil on both sides until golden brown.
10. Serve hot with mint chutney or ketchup.
Note : You can increase or decrease the number of fish fillets depending on the size.The fillets we used were small so we used 4.
