Ingredients

Directions

These potato and lamb croquettes are traditionally served with fresh sliced onions, carrots and beetroot salad.

In a bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, chopped chiles, ground cumin seeds, and chopped fresh cilantro, until well combined. Season the mixture, with salt, to taste. 

For the croquette filling: Heat the 1 tablespoon oil in a pan over a medium heat, add the chopped onion, and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Add the ground lamb, ginger, chile powder, ground coriander, and ground cumin. Cook, stirring continuously, for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the ground lamb has cooked through. 

Add the garam masala, and the lemon juice, and season, with salt, to taste. Strain the lamb mixture through a fine sieve, and allow any excess oil to drain away. Set the mixture aside to cool. 

Divide the potato mixture into 12 equal portions, and roll each portion into a ball. Make a hollow in the center of each potato ball, using your finger. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the lamb mixture into each of the 12 hollows, then fold the potato over and around it. 

Flatten the filled potato ball into a patty using your hands. Place the potato balls onto a baking tray, and cover the tray with plastic wrap, and set aside for 15 to 20 minutes. 

Beat the eggs in a bowl, and sprinkle the bread crumbs onto a plate. 

Heat the oil in a deep heavy-bottomed frying pan until a bread crumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped into it. Caution: Hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended. 

Dip each patty into the beaten egg, and then dredge in the bread crumbs until completely coated. Lower each patty into the oil, and fry for 5 to 6 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown, and completely cooked through. Set aside to drain on a tray lined with paper towels. Serve immediately.
