Home made croquettes
A classic in Spanish homes. / J.G.
Javier Gavilán is studying English and according to him he's come on leaps and bounds since he started logging on regularly to www.surinenglish.com so he thought he would share his recipe for croquettes with other users. Home made croquettes are readily available as tapas in bars and are often found on lunch tables in Spanish houses. Why not chuck out the frozen ones and have a go at making a classic Spanish dish?
PREPARATION:
Peel the onions and cut them very thinly. In a skillet with a little oil, fry the onions until golden and soft. Add the butter, and when it is melted pour in the flour stirring with a wooden spoon everything is thoroughly mixed. Pour in the milk gradually, stirring until it starts to boil. Add a pinch of nutmeg, a pinch of ground white pepper and the ham, stirring until the 'béchamel' starts to form and separate from the skillet. Put the mixture onto a flat plate or tray and cool (2 hours).
Once the mixture has cooled, take small pieces and shape them with your hands, dip in egg, beaten beforehand, and cover in breadcrumbs. Fry in plenty of hot oil until golden. The croquettes can be eaten hot or cold.
