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.
Step-by-step Instructions on how to make Corn Cheese Croquettes
Corn and Cheese Croquettes are easy to make. It serves as a perfect appetizer at a party or a get-together.
|Add spices to sweet corn kernels and mashed boiled potatoes.|
|Mix all the ingredients together.|
|Roll into croquettes, either round or cylindrical in shape. Make a dent on each ball and place a cheese cube. Seal and smoothen the ball. You can substitute adding cheese cubes in the center by adding grated cheese to the whole mixture.|
Now you ought to have a binding agent, mostly it is egg wash to coat breadcrumbs. Here I have replaced eggs with a running batter of flour which would serve the same purpose.

SHALINI BAISIWALA says
I was salivating while reading this just before my brekkie today and wondering if I dare make them. I loooooooove cheese and my cheese cube in this would be tonnes bigger 😉
Love the way your recipes are so precise in details and accompanied by such lovely pics
Pssssst: I made the falafel batter and froze it all as I had to travel immediately; hoping to make then as soon as I get home now. Shall share pics!!
This recipe looks so easy. Nice for an amateur cook like me.
This sounds so GOOD. Living in dairy country in upstate New York, the enquiring part of me asks "what if I don't used process cheese". I would use cheese curds, which is the beginning of cheddar cheese, but you eat it before it becomes cheddar (hard to explain, but they squeak in your mouth and are so good.) I'll have to see if I can schedule this. We already have potatoes from our garden and frozen corn would be a great addition.
Manisha Garg says
This looks easy to make. I will try and surely share with you.
Shailaja Vishwanath says
Oh my, those pictures are absolutely drool-worthy! Shalini, I am seeing this at 10.30 pm! Why do you do this to me? 😀
Gy LOVES this. We had this at a family event a few months ago and I kid you not, she devoured ONLY these things. Had to force her to stop 😉 Okay this is Definitely going on my to-make list in the Dusshera holidays. Thank you!
Oh I always wondered what I was doing wrong in this recipe. I never added the extra cheese in the centre. I used to add grated cheese to the mixture instead and roll it like a croquette. So frankly I could hardly get the taste of cheese nor did I get the taste of corn. In fact I thought it was a complete waste of time. Thanks to your recipe I should get it right now.
Corn. Love it. check!
Cheese. Can't have enough of it. Check!
Fried goodness. Rainy weather. Check!
Didn't need anything else to come check this out! 😀 Photographs just make me hungry now! Passing recipe to Mom.
