Chicken Croquettes
Delicious Appetizer to Go with Drinks!
125 grams fresh chicken fillet
2 tsp. corn flour
1 Tbls. fish sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
Oil (just enough to cover croquettes during frying)

125 grams self-raising flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
Water (In small quantities to obtain a thick batter)


1.Cut chicken into approximately twenty-five 1 cm (half inch) pieces.

2.Season the chicken pieces with the fish sauce, salt and pepper. Set aside to absorb seasoning. Be careful not to add too much salt.

3.Beat up the 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon water.

4.Mix the flour and salt. Gradually blend in the egg mixture. Add water little by little to obtain a thick batter consistency. It should just run off slowly from a tablespoon.

5.Add the corn flour to the chicken pieces and mix thoroughly. Mix the chicken pieces into the batter to uniformly coat every chicken piece.

6.Heat oil (enough to cover croquettes during frying) in a deep frying pan(carail) to simmering point. Reduce heat to low.

7.Spoon out the chicken pieces one at a time with a batter coating and drop into the simmering oil. Cook to a light golden brown colour.

8.Remove cooked croquettes, drain and serve hot with chilli sauce or
sauce d'ail (refer to Sauce d'ail recipe).

9.Enjoy, close your eyes and you see yourself in l'hotel Chinois Maurice.
