Aloo Cheese Croquettes, Potato and Cheese Rolls recipe with step by step photos
Aloo Cheese Croquettes are a perfect snack for kids. Croquettes are fried food rolls ideally covered in an beaten eggs and deep-fried but, the vegetarian croquette recipe makes use of a flour slurry for coating. They can be made with a myriad of ingredients like potato, cheese, paneer, corn, boiled vegetables etc. Listing down some of my favorite croquette recipes :
For making the potato mixture for potato and cheese croquettes, we will first boil 6 medium sized potatoes in a pressure cooker. Do not overcook otherwise they will retain water.
Cool them completely and peel.
Once peeled, mash them very well. Ideally, grated potatoes would be better to help form a smooth mixture. Measure 3 cups using a measuring cup.
Transfer the mashed potatoes in a large bowl.
Add the salt and pepper powder. Also, you can toss some dried herbs if you like.
Mix well and our potato mixture is ready.

For preparing the Cheesy Stuffing for Aloo Cheese Croquettes, in a deep bowl take grated mozzarella cheese. It will melt and give a gooey center.
To this, add the grated processed cheese. While the mozzarella cheese provides a stringy effect, processed cheese provides a nice flavor to the aloo cheese croquettes.
Add the chilli-garlic sauce. The bland cheese takes up the spicy flavour giving tongue-tickling flavour to the potato cheese croquettes. It is available in the market easily but, you can make chilli garlic sauce at home referring our recipe of Chilli Garlic sauce.
