Place a saucepan on medium-high heat and pour 1 cup of water in it. Then add turmeric, salt and fish pieces to the pan. Let it cook for 10 minutes and then strain out the excess water. After the cooked fish reaches room temperature, shred it out on a plate.
Place another saucepan on medium heat and pour some oil in it. Add chopped garlic and onion to the pan and sauté for 2 minutes. Then, add the shredded fish pieces to the pan and mix well. Add chilli flakes, salt and pepper to the mixture to make it flavourful. Add boiled mashed potato and mix all the ingredients. Switch off the heat and set the pan aside. Let the mixture cool down.
In a bowl, add cornflour and gradually keep adding water. Mix it well and form a slurry. Make a ball out of the fish, spices and boiled potato mixture and dip it into the cornflour batter and roll it into the breadcrumbs. Repeat the process one more time to ensure a thick coating.
Place a frying pan on high heat and add some oil to it. Drop a bread crumb in the oil to check whether the oil is ready. Once the breadcrumbs rise to the top instantly, add your coated fish balls to the pan. Deep fry them evenly for 2-3 minutes. Once they turn golden brown, remove them using a skimmer spoon. Place them on a tissue paper to soak up the excess oil. Serve hot with your favourite dip.
Roll the balls using slightly wet hands so that the mixture doesn't stick to your palm.
