With the festive season and plenty of opportunities to host dinners and potlucks in place, here's a quick and easy starter recipe to get you going!
This recipe yields about 3 dozen croquettes.
Boil 4 medium-small or 3 large potatoes; mash with a little salt and pepper and put in a large mixing bowl, to which add 4 chopped chorizos, about a cup of milk, smoked paprika to taste, a cup of chopped coriander leaves, a tablespoon of chopped garlic, and a cup and a third of grated cheese of your choice. Mix and knead like dough; if it's too sticky and doesn't come together, add a little flour to make the balls hold their shape. Roll into balls 2-3 cm in diameter. Roll each ball in flour, then in beaten egg, and then in breadcrumb, and deep-fry. Simple!
Serve with paprika garlic mayo and you're golden.
