4. Create Croquette
Using a spring-loaded ice cream scoop with a 5.5cm diameter as a measure, scoop croquette filling onto a baking tray and halve each with a knife. Shape each croquette into a ball. Place flour in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Lightly whisk the remaining eggs and place in a bowl.

Add croquettes in batches and cook for 3 minutes, turning regularly until evenly coloured. Serve croquettes with tomato sauce or chutney.
