CHEESY POTATO CROQUETTES
In a starter menu, I feel there should be a variety of options, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. It becomes easier for the guests to choose from according to their taste buds and preferences. If there are kebabs, there has to be both veg and non veg varieties, along with some cold chaats and salad platter. I have seen people prefer a variety in the starter menu than in the main course. Its so relaxing to indulge in a chit chat binging your favourite appetiser, sipping your wine or cocktails, mocktails, whatever.
I prepared these all veg. Potato Croquettes in a jiffy in fact. If you have a sudden guest at home or your kids want something very tasty all of a sudden, this can come as a rescue. Made in less than 1 hour these Cheesy fillers are awesome, with both young and old. Very few ingredients I have used in preparing this.
Potato : 3big
Black Pepper Powder : 1 tsp
Salt : As required
Butter[melted] : 2 tbsp
Cheese Slices : I/2 for each rolls
Cornflour : 1tsp
Bread Crumbs : 50 gm
Oil : 50 gm to fry
Peel, wash and boil the potatoes. Let it cool a bit but has to be mashed when still warm.
Melt the butter, half the cheese slices.
Take the boiled potatoes in a bowl. Add salt n pepper, cornflour and melted butter.
Mash for about 10 minutes to get a smooth dough.
Take the bread crumbs in a plate.
Shape the potato mix into rolls and make pockets.
Fill each pockets with half of cheese slice and close. Bring into shape again.
Roll onto the bread crumbs and deep fry in batches.
Serve with your choice of sauce.
2 potatoes should yield 7-8 croquettes.
