Korokke (Meat Croquette)

My apologies to all my visitors for letting this blog go on silent mode for quite sometime. This time, I have a reason infact 2 reasonable reasons to give. Firstly, I find it hard to update during weekends especially when hubby is around because everywhere he goes, he wants me to accompany him, which I will gladly follow. And recently, he has the habit of asking me to go with him when he goes to the driving range to 'whack' a basketful of golf balls. Don't be surprised if all of a sudden, mama declares herself a golfer! Hahahaha... I don't think so! I think I'll stick to my hobby in the kitchen. But then again, when I see him whacking the balls, I feel like doing it as well, who knows it might help me let out the stress, if any.... hahaha...

Secondly, our modem went dead. There was a heavy rain with very very loud thunder and of course lightning. I guess the modem got struck by the lightning. The sound of the thunder was just deafening. In my mind, I was thinking, is this the end of the world? And guess what, Kak Ana thought the same. I had never experienced that situation before and was really scared! Not only me, but mak and Syahmi were scared too. The three of us just sat at the couch in the hall, far from the windows. The main power switch tripped and our fax machine went kaput!

Enough of the reasons, let's move on to my report. Last Sunday, I had tried this recipe which I came across at Lesley's Asian Kitchen. It looks simple and yummy that I just had to try it out myself. It was the right choice. It's simply delicious. Most enjoyed by my visitors and my children.To tell you frankly, I only managed to taste just half the Korokke. Please read and pronounce is K.O.R.O.K.K.E and not KARAOKE or whatsoever ya... hahaha...
So Les, thank you so much for sharing the recipe. My apologies to you for altering your recipe, slightly, to suit my taste... and allow me to post the recipe here, to share with my visitors. Thank you so much.....

Ingredients :

500g potatoes ~ peeled,boiled and mashed
1/2 large onion ~ peeled and diced
1 stalk spring onion ~ washed and cut small
salt to taste
ground white pepper to taste
200g minced meat
5 pieces canned button mushroom ~ diced small
1 cup panko(Japanese bread crumb) ~ I used normal bread crumbs
1 egg ~ lightly beaten
1/2 cup rice flour

Method :

1. Saute minced meat and onion in skillet for 5 minutes.
2. Place mashed potatoes in a large bowl.Combine salt, ground pepper,cooked minced meat, diced button mushrooms and spring onions together, mix well.
2. Shape potatoes mixture into small balls, slightly press the potatoe balls into a cylinder or disk shape. If the potatoes are too soft, place the shaped potatoes into fridge for 30 minutes or longer.
3. Roll shaped potato balls onto rice flour, then dip into egg mixture before coating with breadcrumbs.
4. Prepare fryer or deep skillet at medium heat with oil. Place the coated croquettes into the hot oil. Fry croquette both side until golden brown.
