T loves croquette very much. He will order it whenever we visit Japanese restaurant. There is a stall selling wonderful croquettes in a food court in Sydney Chinatown. We used to patronise that stall pretty often, especially loved their sukiyaki flavour croquette.
Few days ago I made some mayonnaise flavour croquettes and shaped them with the onigiri maker. Both of us loved it very much and I can proudly say that it was the best croquette I ever made.
500g potato (peeled, boiled and mashed)
5-6 tbsp mayonnaise, divided (I used Japanese brand)
1 small onion, chopped
Black Pepper (freshly crushed)
1 egg, lightly beaten
All purpose flour
Bread Crumb (I used Japanese brand)
Oil for deep frying
- Heat 2-3 tbsp of mayonnaise in a non-stick pan. Stir in chopped onion and saute for 1-2 minutes then add in mince. Cook until the mince is browned, add salt and pepper to taste.
- Put mashed potato in a large mixing bowl, stir in cooked mince and remaining mayonnaise. Mix till combined.
- Lightly wet hand with water, divide the mixture into 5-6 portions and shape each portion into the desired shape or patty.
- Coat the patty with all-purpose flour, then egg mixture and lastly bread crumb.
- Deep fry croquettes with low-medium heat oil till lightly browned.
