  • Water enough to make a buttermilk like slurry

How to make Jalapeno Corn and Cheese Croquettes

  1. Let us start with the corn, if you are using the uncooked variety then cook the corn kernels till tender. Drain, cool and make sure they are devoid of all moisture. If you are using frozen corn, thaw, dry thoroughly. Corn in brine needs to be rinsed, drained and dried thoroughly as well. Take out 2-3 tbsp kernels and grind the rest coarsely. Keep aside.
  2. Mix in both the cheeses, chopped jalapenos. Add salt only if required as the cheese is pretty high on salt and pickled jalapenos contain salt too. Divide the mixture into 12 portions, give it desired shape. If you feel it is not holding shape then add little cornflour/maida to provide the binding.
  3. For cornflour slurry, mix in all the ingredients.
  4. Dip the prepared croquettes into the slurry and roll in bread crumbs, press lightly so that the crumbs stick well. Now dip the prepared croquettes again into the slurry, roll again in bread crumbs, make sure they are evenly coated with the crumbs and there are no cracks on the surface. In this case the cheese will ooze out.
  5. It would be a good idea to rest the croquettes for a few minutes before frying. However you can fry them instantly as well.
  6. Deep fry these croquettes on a medium to high flame till they brown evenly. Serve with salsa/ketchup/hot n sweet sauce.
  7. Make sure the oil is hot, else the croquettes will break while frying. Also do not add too many at one time.

My Tip:

There are varieties of spiced and herbed breads available nowadays. You can use any of them to make crumbs, roll the croquettes in this, the flavor will be enhanced. Rest the croquettes for 10-15 minutes in the refrigerator before frying. The result will bea crispier crust. You can even store them for a few hours before you fry. Saves time.
