Vegetable egg croquettes

This croquette is a sure tummy filling and has a lot of mixed vegetables ,eggs and breadcrumbs to combine it all. Its simple ingredients and i always rate this snack as one of my favorite. 
As my kids are at a threshold of hunger spike i have to make a snack for tea . I love snacking  as malabar , especially Kannur, is a huge hub for their snacks . We love preparing chai kaddis (tea snacks ) . Even kitty tea  parties are  trending in our society.  So however tedious work goes into preparing kaddis , every party will be loaded with new varieties. 

These egg and vegetable croquettes  are spicy treat especially when u have guests coming around . Either way my kids love anything thats just tastes  cutletty 😉.

  • 1/4 teaspoon Turmeric powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder 
  • Curry leaves and corriander leaves chopped
  • Salt to taste

Method 
  • Cut the potatoes into half and boil  
  • with skin on for 3 whistles  . Once cooled  ,peel the potatoes and smash.
  • Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and saute the onions . Add the green chillies and ginger garlic paste.  Cook for 3 minutes. Add all the powders.   Add the vegetables and add salt , cook till done. Check the salt and add green chillies if needed.  Add the leaves . Allow to cool .
  • Once it is all done transfer to a large bowl ,add the  potatoes and mix well . 
  • Cut a  boiled egg lengthwise into 6 slices .
  • Now gently coat the egg slices with the potato masala.  
  • Ensure to coat the eggs covering all sides. It will take a cylindrical shape .
  • Dip in the eggs generously and coat in breadcrumbs.
  • Fill a pan with oil . Once hot enough, add the croquettes carefully frying  till golden brown all sides .
  • Serve with hot chilli sauce or with hot chai as i had mine . 
Note :
Check the salt after the masala is done .
These croquettes taste better when its spicy .
While shapping have patience as it tends to break if it doesn't take a proper cylindrical shape around the eggs .
