So, for the preparation of potato croquettes, we need:
500 grams of potatoes
3 tbsp. spoons of flour
Short cooking version:
Clean potatoes, boil until done. Water, do not forget to salt.
Peeled and finely chopped onion, fry in vegetable oil.
Boiled potatoes crush, carefully, so that there are no lumps left.
Beat 2 eggs.
Add fried onions and some flour. All mix well.
Prepare three plates of flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a saucepan or use a deep fryer if you have one. Potato mass cooled, now we form croquettes. I sculpted balls. We post croquettes on the board.
Now we roll them down first in flour.
Then in the egg and at the end in breadcrumbs. Fry in a well-heated oil until cooked. If the fire is weak, croquettes will absorb a lot of oil.
Put the finished croquettes on a paper napkin to absorb excess fat.
