Corn Cheese Croquettes are crispy golden fried rolls made of mashed potatoes, sweet corn, and spices with a cheese cube buried inside. Well, you can always add grated cheese, but who doesn't like to take a bite and relish the cheese oozing out of the croquettes!
Let me confess something! I'm not cheesy! I mean... I am not a cheese person. At all. But corn and cheese croquettes is one appetizer that I absolutely love. It doesn't hurt indulging on calories once in a while, right? Well, knowingly! I think the first time I had these was at some kid's birthday party. I found that it was an instant hit among kids and they were all asking for second or third helpings! As I said, who wouldn't love to munch on this cheesy gooey crispy fried dish!
I have made a completely vegetarian version of Corn and Cheese Croquettes. You might wonder how else we could make it. I will come to that.
Can we use Store bought Sweet Corn Kernels?
Absolutely yes! I have used frozen sweet corn kernels here and have let it thaw in warm water for about five minutes before making the mixture. Remember to pat it dry, so that the mixture doesn't contain much moisture.
