Kabocha Squash Croquettes (the skin included!)

These delicious kabocha squash croquettes use the skin and all. My children love theses dense and floury croquettes. You only need a few ingredients, so they're easy as well as tasty.

1. Take the seeds and inside fibrous bits out of the kabocha squash. Cut into small pieces, put in a heatproof container and microwave until tender. Mash while still hot.
2. Finely chop the onion and put into a heatproof container with the butter on top. Microwave for 2 minutes or so at 600 W. Remove any moisture with a paper towel.
3. Mix the drained canned tuna, onion, mayonnaise and kabocha squash together.
4. Form into small cute balls.
5. Coat the balls in flour, beaten egg and panko in that order, and deep fry in hot oil until crispy.
6. I used a can of tuna with corn this time. Please try different additions.
