I love this croquettes which got a crispy crust & moist filling :) To make it less messier when moulding the patties, I wear a plastic gloves to handle the mixture! It is important to shape the croquettes firmly and chill them well after coating with breadcrumbs. This is to ensure it does not burst during the frying process.
