When planning for a New Year party, one can never leave out the starters. And in this biting cold, what better than croquettes/cutlets? Imagine biting into a crisp, spicy potato croquette and suddenly experiencing a delectable cheesy taste in your mouth! That’s a yummy surprise, isn’t it? Make these croquettes as a starter or simply as an evening snack and you can rest assured your guests won’t forget its taste for a long, long time. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

2 large potatoes (boiled and peeled)
1 carrot (grated)
Mozarella cheese (cut into cubes)
1 small bowl processed cheese (grated)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
Salt (to taste)
4 tablespoons refined flour (dissolved in a 50 ml water to make a thick batter)
1 bowl white bread crumbs
Oil (to fry)

Recipe:

Grate the potatoes so that there are no lumps. Add grated carrot, salt, pepper, cumin powder, garam masala powder and mix well. Make small balls of the potato-carrot mixture and flatten them on your palm. Put a small teaspoon of grated processed cheese and a Mozarella cube in the centre and shape into a ball again. Flatten softly and mould into a desired shape. Dip the croquettes into the refined flour batter and coat well with bread crumbs. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry the croquettes till they turn golden brown. Serve hot, while the cheese is still gooey and stretchy!

Eat, drink and be merry! 🙂
