Directions

  1. Making the dough

    • Peel the potatoes then cut into 1 cm cubes.  Fry until cooked. Mash and set aside.

    • To make the roux, heat the butter over low heat. Once the butter has melted, add the flour, then stir continuously, making sure the flour doesn't clump.

    • Once it’s smooth, add salt and milk then stir until the roux is completely thickened. Remove and set aside.

    • Prepare a medium sized bowl. Add the mashed potatoes, the roux, and ingredients A. Stir the mixture until it is completely blended. Set aside.

    Do not steam the potatoes because it will make the potatoes mushy and it won’t be able to hold shape.

  2. Making the filling

    • Puree the garlic and shallots.

    • Heat up a pan to medium and add the cooking oil. Add the ground spices, galangal, and lemongrass and saute for about 5 minutes.

    • Add the corned beef and seasonings, stir until all ingredients are well blended and slightly dry.

    • Then add the basil leaves and stir again.

    The corned beef filling can be replaced with shredded chicken or shredded carrots and potatoes.

  3. Shape and fry the Kroket Kentang

    • Dip the croquettes in the beaten egg, and then coat with breadcrumbs.

    • Heat the oil to medium and deep fry the croquettes until golden brown. Remove and drain.
