1/2 cup cooked rice /1/2cup mashed potatoes/1 cup bread slices soaked in water and mashed

2-3 eggs

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese(optional)

sufficient breadcrumbs

2 tblsp.oil

salt to taste.

oil for frying


In a separate bowl first mix the chilli sauce,oyster sauce,lime juice,vinegar,pepper,tomato ketchup

green chillies,honey together and set aside. Heat 2 tblsp.oil, add garlic,ginger,lemongrass and saute

well.Stir in the cleaned prawns and saute for about five mins,then add the rest of the ingredients

except breadcrumbs,and set aside to cool . Beat the eggs and set aside.

Bind the prawn mixture into medium sized balls.First roll in breadcrumbs,then dip in eggs,and again roll

in the breadcrumbs  and deep fry in oil till golden brown. Serve with any sauce of  your choice.

TIP:You could use mozzarella cheese cubes in each croquette while binding.

The tails of the prawns can be retained for the crunch….

Fish can be replaced for rice and potatoes,and the prawns can be minced with the fish,and cornstarch

can be added for binding.

Anyway…i’l be coming up with more croquette recipes.
