Croquettes are fried food rolls ideally covered in an beaten eggs and deep-fried but, the vegetarian croquette recipe makes use of a flour slurry for coating. They can be made with a myriad of ingredients like potato, cheese, paneer, corn, boiled vegetables etc. Listing down some of my favorite croquette recipes :  

Potato Mixture For Aloo And Cheese Croquettes

  2. Cool them completely and peel.

Cheesy Stuffing For Aloo Cheese Croquettes

  1. For preparing the Cheesy Stuffing for Aloo Cheese Croquettes, in a deep bowl take grated mozzarella cheese. It will melt and give a gooey center.
  2. To this, add the grated processed cheese. While the mozzarella cheese provides a stringy effect, processed cheese provides a nice flavor to the aloo cheese croquettes.
  3. Add the chilli-garlic sauce. The bland cheese takes up the spicy flavour giving tongue-tickling flavour to the potato cheese croquettes. It is available in the market easily but, you can make chilli garlic sauce at home referring our recipe of Chilli Garlic sauce.
  4. Divide the cheese stuffing into 12 equal portions and keep aside.

   Hi Reshma, Yes you can use any spice powders you wish to... If you do not want to fry with breadcrumbs , roll the croquettes in the plain flour-water mixture and then roll in rava and deep fry...
