Ingredients for 6 potato croquettes with minced meat


For the potato croquettes :

  • 500 g mashed potatoes
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

For the minced meat filling

  • 200 g minced meat (beef or chicken)
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of the following spices :
  • Black pepper
  • Ginger powder
  • Coriander powder
  • Chili powder
  • Ras el hanout (Moroccan spice blend)
  • Fresh parsley and coriander, chopped


  1. Start by frying the onion and crushed garlic in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil until fragrant. Then stir in the grated carrot, minced meat and mixed spices.
  2. Cover the pan and simmer the mixture over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Towards the end of the cooking time, add the chopped parsley and fresh coriander. Allow the mixture to cool before continuing.
  3. If you prefer to use potatoes, peel and rinse them before cubing. Cook the potato cubes in salted water until tender, then mash to a smooth consistency. You can also follow the instructions on the packaging if you opt for a different approach.
  4. Now add an egg to the cooled mixture and mix thoroughly. Gradually add the flour while stirring, so that the mixture is well incorporated. Season to taste with salt and nutmeg.
  5. Place a strip of cling film on your work surface and sprinkle generously with flour to prevent sticking. If you want a crispier result, you can replace this step with a layer of breadcrumbs.
  6. Take a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture and place it on the prepared cling film. Flatten it slightly, then add a tablespoon of filling on top.
  7. Using the cling film, gently press the filling into the potato mixture with your index fingers. Then fold the top of the filling towards you and shape the croquettes into your preferred shape: cylinders, rectangles, patties, or
