The croquette is usually cigar shaped or cylindrical. A fried cylindrical roll that has one of following stuffing minced meat, boiled eggs, fish, vegetables. Today I am sharing a croquette recipe that used minced meat as the main ingredient instead of potato and whole boiled eggs used for stuffing. Its one of those delicious appetisers that you would be happy to serve to your guests. It’s so good and easy to make. Since I used minced mutton I cooked the meat first with spices and then shaped it into cylindrical with boiled eggs as stuffing, rolled in floor, eggs wash and bread crumbs then deep fried it.

Serve Minced Meat And Egg Croquettes hot with Tomato Garlic Chutney or any dipping sauce of your choice.

How to make Minced Meat And Egg Croquettes Recipe

  1. To begin making the Minced Meat And Egg Croquettes recipe, heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add finely chopped onion sauté until onions turn translucent.

  2. Add ginger garlic paste and cook till the raw smell of the paste goes off. Add the spice powders and salt mix well.

  3. Add minced mutton and cook for 5 minutes. Mutton will release its juices. I cooked the meat in its own juices without adding any water.

  4. Took about 30 minutes to get it fully cooked. Remove from stove and cool completely.

  5. Heat oil for deep frying in a deep fry pan. Divide the minced mutton mixture into 4 equal portions.

  6. Take one portion and place it in your palm, press and try to get it together.

  7. Slightly flatten it and place one full boiled egg in the middle and gather the meat to cover the egg fully. Try to shape it into cylindrical shape.

  8. If you find it too hard to handle the meat to shape it, try adding 1 or 2 teaspoon of beaten egg and work with the meat.

  9. Roll the croquettes in flour first, then dip it in egg and then roll with bread crumbs.

  10. Repeat this for all the meat. Deep fry the croquettes until golden brown in oil. Remove of kitchen paper.

  11. Serve Minced Meat And Egg Croquettes hot with Tomato Garlic Chutney or any dipping sauce of your choice.
