Mashed potato croquettes are easy and fast to make. Children love potatoes and seeing that chips are a constant, many a time for dinner I will be making croquette potatoes instead especially for the children. I peel the potatoes the night before and let them sleep in water with a slice of bread to keep the potatoes fresh (in the fridge).

Beat the whole eggs in a bowl and set aside, pour the breadcrumbs in another bowl.

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or in a deep fat fryer over medium-high until a pinch of breadcrumbs bubbles immediately when added.

Dip the potato balls in the egg, then roll in breadcrumbs then in batches, deep fry, turning often, until golden brown and crisp, 3–4 minutes.

Drain on kitchen paper.
