Spinach and Cheese Croquettes Recipe - Crispy Spinach Croquettes Recipe

Croquettes are my favourite..I love the creamy interior and the crispy exterior which is the character of a croquettes..This version is my favourite of all croquettes i ever made..Hubby who is fussy about cheese loved it so much, the spinach and cheese just tasted yummy together..I have few more croquettes recipe coming up, so stay tuned..

This one i made and served it with a cup of tea..You dont need any dipping sauce for it, but tomato ketchup or sweet chilli sauce or my garlic sauce taste fantastic with this..And this is great for kids who are fussy about spinach..They will love it for sure..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
