Basmati rice croquettes with curry and peas: light and quick recipe
Basmati rice croquettes with curry and peas are a delicious gluten free finger food, which can be prepared in a short time. A quick and easy recipe to share with the family.
A super light dish, I used basmati rice for this recipe. I like its fragrance, its delicate scent that releases a spicy aroma and fits perfectly with curry. The cooking of these croquettes takes place in the oven, which takes a little longer than the classic frying, but it’s worth the wait! Creamed only with Parmesan, which allows the rice to flavor and be creamy and not dry.
Finally, the breading is with rice flakes that will give the croquettes, crunchiness and a perfect browning!
An excellent variant to bring to the table both as an aperitif accompanied by various sauces (I chose a yogurt and mustard sauce, which you can find in the tips), and as a single dish accompanied by seasonal vegetables.
Now, I leave you to the recipe of Basmati rice croquettes with curry and peas!
Boil the rice in boiling, lightly salted water. When cooked, drain and transfer the rice to a rectangular pan (brownie pan) or glass bowl. Let it cool for about 30 minutes.
In a non-stick pan, sauté the shallot with a drizzle of oil, pour the peas and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
Put the cooked rice in a bowl (if you used the pan), add the parmesan, pepper, curry, chopped parsley and mix. Add the peas and add the egg yolk. With a fork, even out the dough.
Now that you have prepared the dough for the croquettes, in two bowls, pour the rice flakes and in the other the egg white, previously whipped with a fork. Unimiditevi hands and form spheres, transfer the croquette first in the rice flakes and then in the egg white. Put all the croquettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 180 degrees, preheated oven, for about 30 minutes.
As soon as they are golden, your croquettes are ready.
Serve the rice croquettes while still warm accompanied by the yogurt and mustard sauce. (Find the recipe in the tips)
