About Amaranth Potato Thyme Croquette Recipe

For those who love to eat, it is hard to resist potatoes! This is a creation out of a simple philosophy: Health during weekdays, Indulgence during weekends! This croquette combines the goodness of protein and carbs and is a gluten free baked treat on a rainy day that also serves as a healthy after school snack. Amaranth not only gives structure and flavour to the croquette but is also crisp, crunchy and nutty on the outside! The origin of both amaranth and potatoes are traced back to Peru, the discovery being about 8000 – 10000 years ago. Enjoy this simple treat with your evening tea.

Amaranth Potato Thyme Croquette

Ingredients to make Amaranth Potato Thyme Croquette

  • 4 medium potatoes boiled
  • 3/4 cup roasted amaranth seeds
  • 3 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic grated
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper crushed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • oil for brushing
  • salt to taste

How to make Amaranth Potato Thyme Croquette

  1. Pre-heat your oven at 180 C
  2. Wash and peel the potatoes. Grate them and immerse them into a bowl of water and set aside.
  3. Roast the Amaranth until it crackles over a low flame.
  4. In a skillet, heat oil and then add chopped green chillies, grated garlic and chopped thyme.
  5. To this mix, add the grated potatoes, butter, salt, crushed pepper until the potatoes are flavoured through. Turn off the heat, and add the roasted amaranth seeds until well combined.
  6. Shape them into oval shaped croquettes. Roll this ball over the Amaranth seeds until coated on all sides.
  7. Brush with oil and bake for about 20 minutes in Oven mark 5 until evenly brown on all sides.

My Tip:

Managing the potatoes is the trick here! The potatoes should be hard-boiled, it must not be mushy.
