Easy to cook and delicious Potato Croquette.

Potato croquettes are a traditional food from the Netherlands. The word croquette comes from Dutch Kroketten, which can be interpreted as coming from French Croquette. This food was popularized after World War 2 when food suppliers made snacks in large quantities. This dish is very similar to risoles (Indonesian snacks), another type of fried croquette that can be filled with beef/chicken, cheese, vegetables, and other ingredients. Croquettes are a very simple dish and easy to make, each country has its version of croquettes. For example, Korokke is a croquette originating from Japan, filled with potatoes, carrots, and onions, usually eaten with tonkatsu sauce. Aloo Tikki is a croquette originating from India, usually stuffed with potatoes and beef. Croquettes themselves are generally made from minced meat which is covered in flour or breadcrumbs and then deep-fried. This potato croquette requires fried and steamed potatoes. Then the potatoes are crushed, then seasoned, then filled with cooked minced meat along with chopped carrots and vegetables. Potato croquettes are generally round, covered in flour or breadcrumbs, and deep-fried until cooked. It can be eaten with chili sauce/tomato sauce/mayonnaise.
