DSC_2059.jpg

INGREDIENTS

400g potatoes, cut into 2cm cubes and soaked in a bowl of water for 10 min
1 medium onion, minced
100g fresh spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
Same amount of ginger, minced
2 Tbls olive oil
1 1/2 Tbls curry powder
1 Tbls ketchup
1 Tsp sugar
1 Tsp garam masala
1 Tsp vegan Worcester sauce
Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1 cup Panko (breadcrumbs)


Directions:
1. Drain the potatoes and place on a microwave suitable plate. Cover with clear film, cook for 6 min (700w). Uncover the plate and cook again for 2 min until potatoes are soft. Mash the potatoes in a big bowl. If you want a stronger potato flavor, you can leave the skins on.
2. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add onion, garlic and ginger and stir-fry until the onion is golden. Add spinach and cook until the spinach is soft. Add the fried veggies to the bowl with the potatoes.
3. Add olive oil, curry powder, ketchup, sugar, garam masala and Worcester sauce and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Separate the mixture into 4 balls and form into burger shapes.
4. Toast the panko in a frying pan over mid heat until brown. It's easy to burn, so please be careful.
5. Mix the flour and water in a bowl. Dip the burgers first into the flour/water mixture, then into the panko.
6. Bake the croquettes for 10 min in a 220 degree oven, flip over and bake for 5 more minutes.
7. Eat with your favorite sauce (e.g brown sauce or chili sauce)!!



Croquette again! But this one is healthier than my other post! I usually use Japanese brown sauce like Tonkatsu sauce but you can enjoy them without sauce too!
If you don't mind eating oily food, you can also deep-fry the croquette (You don't need to toast the panko first). It is the traditional way to cook them.

Vegan Memo:
- If you deep-fry these, they will soak up quite a lot of oil (about 10% of the weight of the croquette).
