Croquette (Korokke)

This is a Japanese style croquette—we call it “korokke”. It is deep fried crushed potato. We also have a cream sauce croquette with shrimp or crab. My favorite way to eat it is to buy it directly from deli and eat is on the street! It is super yummy!! I made it for four servings this time, please make half all the ingredients if you want to make it for 2. I always make extra and keep it freezer.
