Corn Croquettes

I came across this recipe in Arundati's blog sometime back and had bookmarked it. One morning, as always, I stood in front of the opened refrigerator thinking what to cook. When my eyes crawled over a bag of sweet corn kernels, I knew I am going to make this mouth watering corn croquettes. So I quickly went through the recipe, made some few changes, to suit our taste buds and the outcome was "Melt-in-your-Mouth Corn Croquettes". I made it a less spicy so that my son can enjoy it too and he completely loved it just like we did. You can adjust the spiciness as per your taste.


1. Sweet Corn Kernels - 2 cups
2. Potato - 1 large
3. Onion - 1 small chopped
4. Ginger Garlic paste - 1 teaspoon.
5. Green Chillies- 1 or as per taste
6. Salt - as needed
7. Seasoned breadcrumbs - as needed
8. Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
9. Oil - to shallow fry


1. Cook the corn kernels for 5 minutes. Darin all the water. Blend it into a coarse mixture and keep it aside.
2. Cook the potato, mash it and keep it aside.
3. Heat a tawa, add the chopped onions, ginger garlic paste, green chillies and saute well till the onions turn translucent.
4. Now add the blended corn kernels, mashed potato, salt and lemon juice.
5. Mix it well and turn off the heat. Once it is warm enough to touch, add bread crumbs as needed to make the mixture good enough to form patties.
6. Make lemon sized balls with the mixture and roll it round between your palms. This recipe will yield 8 -10 croquettes.
7. Heat a skillet, add a tablespoon of oil. When it is hot enough, place 4 or 5 croquettes around the skillet and cook them till they are golden brown. Turn them over and cook till the other side becomes golden brown too.
8. Place it in a paper towel so that any additional oil drains .

Serve it hot with any dipping sauce or have it as it is like what we did :-) .
