This is an Asian version specially Goan(Indian) version of fish cake . Can be prepared when you have any left over fish lying in the freezer and want to make some quick,easy and good fish recipes other then the traditional fried fish or fish curry. This fish patty is called as dangar in Konkani. I have prepared this using visvan or isvan(kingfish) but you can use any kind of fish. Fish patty can be eaten as it is or can be used with burger bread.
