In simple language, Potato Croquettes is a name for fried cutlets made with breadcrumbs. They are primarily served as an appetizer during evening snacks.

Wrap them in a Paratha or stuff inside a sandwich to make it a meal. They can be made within 20 minutes to serve your hungry guests.

Here is the tried and tested recipe with all step by step pictures.

  • 3/2 Cup Boiled Potato
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Black pepper powder
  • 5 Tbsp Cornflour
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Cup Oil ( for deep frying)
  • 1 Number Green Chili (Chopped)

Serve Potato croquettes with Coriander Chutney
  1. You can enjoy the Potato Croquettes with Green Coriander Chutney, Amchoor chutney or Tomato Sauce.
  2. Some people like to stuff them inside sandwich or burgers to make it a meal.
  3. For best taste, deep fry them only when you have to serve immediately. They can be refrigerated but re-heating would make them dull and non-crisp. You can off-course re-heat using a Microwave. Re-frying is not recommended.
  4. If you want to prepare in advance for your guests, you can complete the dough making process. Refrigerate the Croquette pieces and then fry as and when you want to serve.
