Korokke (Croquette) - Video Recipe

Korokke (Croquette) is a parcel of food such as minced meat or vegetables, shaped into a cylinder or circle, encased in breadcrumbs and deep fried. 

My mom always mixes minced meat and boiled eggs to add richness, which makes the croquette really addictive! My darling loves it, so I always make tons of them!

  1. hehehe forgot to tell you, i tried your recipe for this! i added some peas and corn as well. the eggs made it yummier :D

  2. wow thanks grub!

    peas and corn sounds delish, too :D i love mixed vegetables. hehe

  3. my honey loves eggs hardboiled, so adding them into the croquette is a good idea! he usually does not fancy deepfried food, but i LOVE deepfried stuff. hehe, maybe he'll like this recipe, cuz of the hardboiled eggs~~

    p.s. i think he did ok for the 2 papers yesterday, it's his last paper 2day, then it's party time! oh n he got stopped over by police yesterday, cuz he left home late, & so was speeding on the road. police told him he'll get the fine invoice soon. poor honey...

  4. OCHI!!!! This is my favourite video yet... you know why? I LOVE KOROKKE!!! I always order it whenever i go to japanese restaurants but i've never tried it with minced meat inside! It's always just the one with corn. This version sounds so good and i will definitely have to try to make it - it would be good to bring to parties! :)
