"Indian style snapper fish cakes with coconut-chilli raita "

I made this dish on Wednesday night and it was an absolute winner in the household. The kids just ate them plain without raita and yoghurt but at least it was a success! For those of you that know me well, you will understand that feeding my fussy kids is a job in itself πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
.
Give it a go this weekend! You could even serve them smaller as canapes and yoghurt dipping sauce if entertaining πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
