Made some of these babies for evening snacks. Slept at 7am this morning till 4pm just now! Watched the second half of Germany vs. Spain (kinda boring though, Spain won 1-0). Dinner time will be soon but I'm already hungry and wouldn't fancy a heavy meal right after waking up.
I combined everything above with the mashed potatoes except the breadcrumbs and egg white.
This are how my mashed potatoes look like after being mashed. I like using either Yukon Gold or Red Desiree. White potatoes can't give you such flaky effect. For the potatoes here, I boiled them skin on, on high heat, uncovered for about 20mins. Then I skinned them and mashed them finely.
Here comes the proportion:
80g of cheese, finely grated (I used Parmesan, you could you cheddar I suppose)
1 egg yolk
A bunch of coriander, finely chopped
1/2 tsp of salt
A dash of black pepper
A dash of curry powder (I should have put a little more for the spicy sensation)
3 medium sized red Desiree potatoes, mashed
Form into balls and dip these balls into egg wash (one egg white mixed with a little water) and coat them into breadcrumbs (spread one thin layer onto a large plate)
Deep fry these croquettes until turned golden brown. It took me 8-10mins to brown one batch of these potato croquettes. I used medium heat.
After deep frying, pat them dry with kitchen towel and serve with different dips. I had them with mayonnaise dip, BBQ dip and Thai sweet chilli dip would be good too!
Mango Pudding, the n-th version - I know I am a freak. A freak for everything wobbly and sturdy. I love mango pudding with a passion. I love it so much I could not describe to you how much...
