Tofu Croquette

Posted August 18th, 2010 in Food 2 Comments »

Coated with breadcrumbs, deep-fried until golden brown….  Croquette can be a snack item as well as a main menu.  You can arrange it with the ingredients and sauces for a variety.  Adding tofu to the croquette and making the potato % into half potato and half tofu can reduce the calorie, carb, and add extra nutrition.

Enjoy while they are hot!  You can freeze the batch before deep-frying : place in a gip-lock bag and close the bag tightly. If freezing, you’d better shape the croquette flat so that they will be cooked thoroughly when deep-frying the frozen ones.

<Tofu Croquette>  Makes 8~10
  • 100g mince (I used 50g beef & 50g pork)
  • 2 potato
  • 350g tofu (momen tofu preferred)
  • 1/2 onion
  • plain flour,   1 egg, breadcrumbs to coat
  1. Boil peeled potatoes until cooked through.  Cut the potatoes into pieces so that they’ll be cooked faster.  Drain, and mash.
  2. Meanwhile, chop onion finely.  Heat 1/2 tbs oil in a frying pan and saute over low heat.  Add mince and saute until cooked.  Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a container or plate to cool.
  3. Place tofu in a microwave proof plate or container.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  Drain any liquid, and wipe with paper towel.
  4. Mix the tofu with mashed potato.  Add mince, and mix through. Divide and Shape.
  5. Beat the egg well.  Prepare 3 plates: one is for the flour, one is for the egg wash, and the one is for the breadcrumbs.
  6. Start heating up the oil in a deep pan.  Dust the croquette mixture with flour, shake off any excess.  Dip in the egg wash, then drop in the plate of breadcrumbs.  Coat well, and deep-fry until golden.  (the oil should be around 180°)
  7. Serve while hot with sauce  (I mixed tomato sauce and Worcester sauce) or as it is.

    Very smart to use the tofu. I’ll try this! We love love love korokke but being diabetic it isn’t very good for me. Maybe with tofu it can be a little better for me 😉
