How to make Cauliflower Croquettes Recipe
To begin making the Cauliflower Croquettes Recipe, we will first pressure cook the cauliflower with little water and sprinkle some salt and cook it for 2 whistles.
Keep it aside and allow the pressure to release naturally.
In a sauce pan, heat milk, add butter, garlic and little salt and bring it to a boil. Once it starts boiling, slowly add flour and keep whisking till it comes together and forms a lump.
Set aside and rest for few minutes till the mixture cools down.
In the mean while take the cauliflower out and blitz it in a blender to a coarse mixture.
Heat a saucepan, add a little butter and some chopped garlic and allow it to sizzle for few seconds.
Add the ground cauliflower mixture, sprinkle the seasonings like rosemary, oregano and tabasco sauce and check for salt as well.
Keep cooking the mixture for around 10 – 15 minutes and set aside to cool down.
Once done, mix the cauliflower into the flour and milk mixture and shape them into cylindrical shapes.
Refrigerate the croquettes for at least 15 minutes in the freezer before you fry them.
Whisk the egg in a plate and keep it ready, keep the bread crumbs also by the side.
Heat a flat skillet and add some oil to shallow fry the croquettes.Take the croquettes out and dip them in egg and coat evenly with bread crumbs and shake off any excess crumbs.
Drop them into the hot oil carefully and shallow fry the till they turn golden brown. Skim the croquettes and drain it over a paper napkin.
