I just made these yummy Indonesian Croquettes.

For the potatoes:

  • 600gr of potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Grated nutmeg
  • 1 egg

Peel and boil the potatoes, mash them and add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Leave too cool and add 1 egg and kneed into a dough.

Filling:

  • 250 gr of mixed pork/beef mince
  • Bit of ketcap manis
  • Grated nutmeg (about half a nutmeg)
  • Little bit of sugar
  • 1 clove of garlic

Brown the mince, add the rest of the ingrediënts and let it cool. Take a handful of potato mixture and press the middle so you can stuff it with the filling. I also made round shapes which were a bit easier and snacksize. Then coat the croquette in toasted breadcrumbs. I didn’t double coat, but you could roll them in whisked egg and coat them again. Deep fry for a couple of minutes.

I made the croquettes yesterday, kept them in the fridge and fried them today.. yummy!!! Next time I’m going to try to add an onion to the filling.
