Beef Croquettes


Croquetes are cylindrical, covered in breadcrumbs, and deep-fried. They are usually made with white sauce and beef, sometimes mixed with varying amounts of pork, and frequently with some chourico, black pepper, or piri-piri to add more flavour.

Ma croquettes ingredients is noted below :

Ingredient’s :

• 500 grams double ground beef mince

• 2 medium sized onions

• 2 inch fresh ginger peeled

• 4 big garlic pods

• ½ tsp. Turmeric Powder

• 1 tbsp Garam Masala

• 1 tsp. black Pepper

• 2 Green Chillis

• 1 tsp red Chilli (Kashmiri Chili)

• 2 tbsp Water

• Juice of one lime (locally known as Indian Lemon)

• 2 soft slice bread without the rind

• 1 Egg

• Semolina (locally known as Rawa)

• Salt according to your taste


Method :
Add the meat mince to a pot with the roughly chopped onion, ginger, garlic and spices such as Turmeric Powder, garam masala, salt, pepper, roughly chopped green chillies and red chilli pwd. Also pour in the water and cook on slow to medium heat until all the water is absorbed and the ingredients are cooked. Important: the meat content should be dry!

Allow to cool after cooking and then blend to a smooth texture with the lime juice.

Add the meat mix to a mixing bowl and add the flaked slice bread with the egg. Mix it all so that all the ingredients are well combined.

Keep in the fridge for 20 minutes. If the croquette mixture is cooled, it’s easier to form them.

Form your croquettes into cylinders shape. The exact size and shape doesn’t really matter.

Then roll the shaped croquettes in the semolina.

Heat up a pan with enough oil to shallow fry your goan beef croquettes on all sides until they are golden and crisp.

Enjoy. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
