How to make Cheesy beetroot croquettes

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients listed up to salt to taste. Mix well and form a smooth dough, you may add some breadcrumbs, if you need to bind the mixture, I didn’t need any.
  2. Make a lemon sized ball, flatten it , put some grated cheese in the cavity, gently seal it, and form a smooth ball. Dip this in the cornflour slurry ( mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water) ,then roll them over the breadcrumbs.
  3. Prepare the remaining croquettes in the same way. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  4. Heat 2-3 drops of vegetable oil in the cavities of the ebelskiver pan, Place the balls in the cavities, let them cook for 3-4 minutes on medium heat,then flip gently and cook until evenly browned from all sides.
  5. Serve hot with dip of your choice / tomato ketchup.

My Tip:

If you do not have a paniyaram pan, flatten them into tikkis / patty and shallow fry them.
