Croquettes made of corn are quite common. However, you would have noticed that most of these are made of cheese, which makes them a bit tricky to make and also makes it imperative to consume them immediately lest the cheese gets chewy.
In this unique recipe, cooked rice is combined with white sauce, sweet corn, green chillies and other flavour adders, to make the base dough for delicious crumb-coated, deep-fried Corn and Rice Croquettes.
The croquettes have an irresistible golden-coloured, crispy outer layer, which gives way to a soft, succulent mixture inside.
Ideal to serve as a starter at parties, the exciting texture and pleasant flavour of the Corn and Rice Croquettes are sure to be loved by all.
