Potato Tuna Croquettes

potato tuna croquettes

Potatoes are simply one of the most versatile foods ever and I love them no matter which way they’re cooked. I don’t deep fry much but when it comes to croquettes, I make an exception.

Found this recipe in the papers recently and it’s different from my other croquette recipe. This one uses tuna and is more like the Malay’s bergedel. Anyway cooked this for dinner yesterday and it tasted rather yummy. Try it out why don’t you?


Potato Tuna Croquettes

3 russet potatoes
2 tbsp oil
1 can tuna (170g) drained
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp curry powder
1 to 2 cups bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
Oil for deep-frying
salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes in a pot of water. When they become soft, peel off skin and mash them.

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a pan. Fry onions and garlic until lightly browned. Add tuna, salt, pepper, chilli powder and curry powder, and toss well. Add mash potatoes and mix well.

Roll the tuna mixture into patties. Coat each patty with breadcrumbs, dip into beaten egg and roll again in breadcrumbs.

Heat oil for deep-frying until it’s almost smoking. Fry croquettes in batches until they turn golden brown. Lower heat if they brown too soon. Drain croquettes on paper towels and serve hot with tomato or chilli sauce.

Recipe from the ‘Today’ paper, pg 34, Thursday 29 Dec 2005.

I tried making it today. It’s good. Though, I left out the salt & pepper, it tastes just fine. Even my 10mth old son loved it! Yummy!
