How to make Asian Style Sweet Potato Croquettes Recipe
To begin making Asian Style Sweet Potato Croquettes Recipe, pressure cook the sweet potatoes, peel the skin off, mash and keep aside in a big bowl.
Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a shallow pan, add the onions and saute until it turns translucent.
Once the onions have turned translucent add in the green chillies, coriander and saute till the coriander leaves wilt. Turn off the heat and let it cool a bit.
After the onion mixture has cooled down add it into the mashed sweet potato mixture. To this add the soy sauce, white pepper powder, season with salt and mix well to combine.
Divide the mixture into equal portions and make around 2 inch long croquettes, arrange them on a plate.
Now in a plate mix the cornstarch, a pinch of salt and bread crumbs together.
Take each prepared croquette, gently roll it into the breadcrumbs mixture, and press gently so that the crumbs stick to the sweet potato croquette. Keep this aside.

"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
