Fried Chicken Croquettes

I made this couple of days before on a cold rainy rainy day..I also made some hot and sour chicken soup for dinner..Can you imagine how comforting it was..I had a steaming hot bowlful of this soup and lots of croquettes..My sisters loved it too..This is perfect for parties or any get togethers, Because it it so easy to make and a little portion yields lots of this tiny morsels..Believe it or not I got around 40 mini bites of this..

I added some Indian touch to the traditional chicken croquettes with some ginger and garlic paste and green chillies...You could add any herbs or spice powders as you wish..My favorite will be oregano or rosemary..The cool thing about this dish is you could make a ton of this untill breadcrumbs coating and freeze the whole lot in freezer containers..So you can make it whenever you want..Isn’t that cool..So I hope you love it and off you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..

  21. Can we substitute flour with rava/sooji in this recipe?

  22. Shilpa I think you can substitute flour with rawa, but you dont need to dip that in egg or breadcrumbs after that...Make croquettes and roll it in rawa( make sure it is fine rawa or use powdered rawa) and then fry it in oil..

    I have not tried this,but hope it works..Tell me how it came..

  38. Hi Aarthi,

    All your recipes are awesome especially the way you take pains to give your viewers step by step pictorial guidance. Keep up the good work.

    I tried this recipe and it came out very well. But there is a sweet taste to these croquettes, is there anything we can do to make it more spicy. I added pepper to it but the sweet taste still remains the same.

  39. Hi Aarthi. The recipe looks yummy. For the vegetarian version can this be tried with potatoes? How does it come?

  40. Hi Aarthi, Your way of explaining, along with pictures is really cool. It helps us to understand way better. I have tried a few of your dishes and it came out really well.. I tried this dish ( fried chcken croquettes) too yesterday and it was super crispy and delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe.

  42. @aarthi dhanrajI think u could bake this as well..just try it..

  44. Can we freeze this before frying?

  45. What milk r u using n this recipe? Cow's or coconut???

  46. Aarthi, if we freeze these, then do we defrost them before frying or fry straight from frozen?

  47. Hey... This recipe is a keeper! Tried it out two ways, I.e. paneer and chicken and it tastes fab! Thank u!!!

  48. Hi Aarthi, I tried chicken croquettes today as per your recipe. I just added chilli powder and pepper powder in addition cos I wanted it a lil spicy. This recipe is healthy cos it comes out really crispy without deep frying and by just tawa frying. It came very well and my family loved it a lot :) Thanks to you.
