Round Potato Croquettes

Round Potato Croquettes

These are just with potatoes and omit the meat and onions. They're well seasoned, so no need for sauce.

Ingredients: Around 20

Potatoes
3 - 4 (net weight 450 g)
Milk
2 tablespoons
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Butter
5 g
Pepper
a pinch
*Flour
4 tablespoons
*Water
5 tablespoons

Steps

1. Cook potatoes by boiling, steaming or microwaving. I cut the potatoes and boiled them.
2. Mash the potatoes, add milk, salt, butter and pepper, then mix. If you boiled the potatoes, make sure they're drained well.
3. Form the mashed potatoes into balls, a bit bigger than ping-pong balls, and let cool. Add milk if they're difficult to form.
4. Add the * ingredients into the bowl, mix well to avoid lumps from forming. It should be a thick consistency.
5. Coat the potato balls with Step 5 and roll in panko. Coat well with panko all over.
6. Deep fry in heated oil. Don't crowd the pan, otherwise the croquettes will burst.

Story Behind this Recipe

To retain the potato flavor, I eliminated the other ingredients!
I first made this dish for the Moon-viewing festival. But it was well-received by my family that I always shape croquettes into balls like this.
