Let me tell you that most of the food pics are from my lunchbox or snack box. Hence the bad presentation or bad pics. Please excuse for for that.

  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 425g can tuna in brine, drained
  • 2 tablespoons coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • extra-light olive oil, for shallow frying



  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Peel and mash until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Heat olive oil in a small, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and paprika. Cook for 1 minute. Add potatoes and coriander into the pan. Mix well.
  3. Place egg and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes. Using 1/4 cup mixture at a time, shape mixture into small sausage shapes. Dip croquettes, 1 at a time, in egg then roll in breadcrumbs to coat.
  4. One-third fill a frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook croquettes, in batches, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Serve with rocket leaves.
