Creamy Korokke

While checking out some of the bento blogs, I came across this interesting entry about korokke making. From what I have read, korokke is the Japan-ised version of the western croquettes. Our little cherub loves anything that is fried with coated breadcrumbs, so I thought maybe I would try to introduce this to her. It is also a popular item for bentos, but I doubt it would stay crispy that long.

This recipe is from The Japanese Kitchen but I made a few substitutions to it. It was surprisingly simple to make, except for the frying part which is usually a messy business. Instead of using the panko breadcrumbs, I used homemade breadcrumbs which were finer, hence there were no crispy shards on my korokke. The korokkes has a tinge of sweetness on it, which puzzles me as I didn't add any sugar to it. Hmm....

Anyway, once they were out of the fryer, my little cherub couldn't keep her hands off them.

Let's take a smell taste first ...

Let's take a poke now!
