Veggie Prep

  1. Heat a teaspoon of butter and add in finely chopped mushroom and salt. Saute till the mushroom is completely dry and soft. Set aside on a plate to cool.

The thick sauce / filling

  1. Add all purpose flour (maida) and milk to a pan and mix well with a wire whisk. Place the pan on heat and stir well. The mixture will slowly start to thicken and lump up.
  2. Remove from heat and add in a egg yolk. Whisk well. When smooth, place the mixture on stove and stir two minutes to thicken the sauce. Remove from heat. Add in the butter, pepper and a pinch of fresh nutmeg.
  3. Add in the sauteed mushroom. Mix well to combine.
  4. Spread 1/2 inch thick on a buttered plate. Spread a little butter on top surface. Cover with a plate and chill for an hour.

Coating in flour and crumbs

  1. Get 3 plates and add flour (maida) in one plate, beaten egg white in the other and bread crumbs on the third plate.
  2. Scoop a teaspoon full of the chilled mixture and drop it in the flour. Dredge lightly and shape into a round ball or a square.
  3. Drop the floured ball into the egg mixture. Spoon the egg white mixture over entire surface.
  4. Drain on a fork and drop it into the bread crumbs. Pat crumbs evenly over the surface.
  5. Gently shape the ball and arrange on a plate.

Deep Frying

  1. Heat oil in a pan until hot. Brown 3-4 croquettes at a time for a couple of minutes.
  2. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot!
