Hi Ann, if I am replacing prawns with mozarella cheese, how much to use? Thanks
Hi Ai Li, you can only add about a tablespoon of cheese in the center because the croquettes will look awful after deep fried if you mix in too much cheese.
Ann, you mean 1tbsp of cheese in each pattie? Can I use grated mozarella cheese? Thanks
Yes Ai Li use grated mozarella or cut in cubes. First try one or two pieces and see the result.
Oh the croquettes are so so so good! Thanks, Ann!
Hi XianHUI, yes you can prepare this one or two days ahead or even freeze them before frying.
do you think after shaping the potatoes into patties, i can refrigerate them overnight to fry them the next day? cos i'd need them at night for a party but i wouldnt have enough time for everything in the evening.

I came across so many recipes today that my little girl will LOVE…this is definitely one of them. She is such a huge fan of home made tatertots, so this version with the shrimp is wonderful and must taste way better than plain potato's, actually, this is great not just for the little one's but for adults too…it would be excellent to serve with drinks over the holiday season. Thank you Anncoo.
Oh! No wonder must taste great, you prawns in it 🙂 Love it!
Congrats on your award. The potato croquettes look delicious. I think they would be great with a dipping sauce too!
I love potatoe croquettes. These look so yummy!
looks like I found another recipe stand by in my pot luck party, those American must love it because they consume a lot of potato, thanks for sharing!! 🙂
I like potato croquettes – the only place I know selling potato croquettes is actually a Japanese 'stall' in a food court in Sydney China town. I guess I am just not that well-travelled ;-).
Cherry Potato: Thank you 🙂
Petite: Yes, this is an easy Japanese snack. Good idea for mixing some pumpkin in it.
I love potato croquettes, and these definitely look like the Japanese version. Can also use sweet potatos and pumpkin I think. The bread crumbs coating is crunchy & delicious to the bite!
I think I can have these as my snack loh, look yummy oh………
Pearlyn: Make it at home is so much cheaper than in the restaurant.
Coleen: You are welcome 🙂
What a great idea! We make something very similar, using small pieces of cooked salmon. I never thought of using shrimp. This sounds very good. Thank you for sharing.
ohhhhhh… I live this one ! Will always order whenever I eat at Japanese restaurant… thanks for sharing… yum yum
CBL: haha…because there is another extra mouth to feed.
My Little Space,
So next time you can just make this yourself. Actually you can store this in freezer before deep frying.

My Asian Kitchen: Actually this is a Japanese snack. Not sure whether the Malays add any bread crumbs.
Angie, I also prefer to use mayonnaise 🙂
KS Hang: Have just posted the picture of the prawn paste at Deep Fried Chicken Wing with Prawn Paste. Please take a look.
This is available at most supermarket. This brand that I am using is a very Cantonese condiment. There are other type of brand, some used in rojak, Penang Assam Laksa or even in Indonesia or Thai dish.
