Japanese style potato croquettes are a tasty treat for children and adults alike. As an alternative, you can also add a bit of curry powder to the potatoes as a change, or omit the meat and add some peas.
3-5 potatoes, peeled
2 tbsps oil
2 medium onions, diced and fried until soft and golden yellow
1/2 lb ground pork, browned
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
For the breading:
2 eggs, lightly beaten with a bit of water
Boil the potatoes until they are soft and drain. Put them in a large bowl and add the onions, pork, salt and pepper, and worcestershire sauce. Mash the potatoes and mix well with the other ingredients.
Form them into the size of ping pong balls and flatten slightly. Make sure to pack them tightly, or else they will fall apart.
Cover lightly with flour, then egg, then roll them around in the panko liberally.
Deep fry and serve with tonkatsu sauce.
