These croquettes are easy to make and super yummy!
½ kg white potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
½ cup boiled and shredded chicken (boil with 1tsp garlic/ginger paste and salt)
2 capsicum, chopped very finely (you can use a combination of colors if you like)
2 small onions, chopped finely
1 big carrot, grated
1 tbsp. oil or butter
2 tbsp. chopped coriander
1-2 green chilies, chopped
salt to taste
juice of 1 lemon (or to taste)
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
Heat the oil, then add the onions, capsicum and carrot. Cook them down for just a couple of minutes to slightly soften them. Then add them to the mashed potatoes, add the green chilies, salt, lemon, chili powder, black pepper, chopped coriander and the shredded chicken. Mash together and adjust the spices n salt to your taste.
Shape the croquettes and refrigerate for at least half an hour, or several hours preferably if possible.
When ready to fry, beat one egg with a tsp. of water. Put some breadcrumbs in another plate. Dip the croquettes in the egg then roll one at a time in the breadcrumbs until well covered. Fry on medium heat until golden and crispy. You can shallow fry if you like, but I prefer deep frying these to get an even perfect coloring. Serve with chutney of your choice and enjoy! :)
