Korokke (Meat Croquette)

Korokke is Japanese croquette with vegetables and meat. I recalled I used to eat korokke all the time when I was working in Malaysia.I wonder why mostly all Japanese restaurant in New York don't have korokke in their menu..Well,maybe people here are more health consciences or maybe they prefer french fries than korokke.. Usually I store plenty of potatoes at home..Previously I make some begedal (potatoes cutlet) and hubby loves it.So this time I try something different from begedal.To my surprised hubby like korokke rather than begedal.He like the crispness of panko on the outer layer.. if you are looking for more croquette information,hop over HERE!!

3 lbs potatoes,peeled,boiled and mashed
1 large onion,peeled and cut small
1 stalk scallion,washed and cut small
salt to taste
ground white pepper to taste
1 lb minced meat (pork ,beef or chicken)
2 cup panko(Japanese bread crumb)
2 eggs,lightly beaten + 2 tbsp water
1 cup rice flour
enough oil for frying
1:Sauteed minced meat and onion in skillet for 5 minutes.Mashed boiled potatoes in a large bowl.Combine salt, ground pepper,cooked minced meat,cut scallion and onion together,mix well.
2:Divide potatoes mixture into 12-15 pieces.Shape potatoes mixture into ball,slightly press the ball shape potatoes into a cylinder or disk shape.If the potatoes is too soft,placed the shaped potatoes into fridge for 30 minutes or longer.
3:Prepare egg mixture in a bowl .Roll shaped potatoes onto rice flour,then dip into egg mixture before coated with panko.
4:Prepare fryer or deep skillet at medium heat with oil.Placed panko croquette onto the hot oil.Fry croquette both side until golden brown.

Looks yummy! If I were to do this, I'll have to substitute the panko with the normal bread crumbs.. because I don't have panko at home and I don't even know how panko looks like. Hehe... Thanks for sharing the recipe ya...
