Spread the Joy!
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..
