As a run up to Christmas, I shall be cooking Anglo Indian recipes this entire fortnight. Pies and puddings. Casseroles and curries. A delectable spread of Anglo-Indian delicacies that we adore and relish.
And it’s sinful fish croquettes for me this morning.
Croquettes. Originated in the hallowed Parisian kitchens towards the turn of the twentieth century. Introduced in India by the English. Given a spicy makeover by the memsahibs bawarchis. The inspiration behind the medley of tempting chops that are synonymous with Bengali cuisine today.
And here’s my version of fish croquettes, delectable bhetki stuffing in spiced mashed potato cases, crumb-fried to a gorgeous golden.
Heavenly. With a cup of steaming chai or coffee.
