Curry Goat Cheese Croquette


Who is ready to bid farewell to 2020?!? I know I am. But not without these Curry Goat Cheese Croquette inspired by my Curry Goat Cheese & Fig Flatbread recipe. The curry goat cheese croquette has got the spice, tang, and crunch. It’s basically masala goat cheese rolled into mini balls, dipped into corn starch slurry, rolled in breadcrumbs, and air fried until golden brown. These curry goat cheese croquette would make for an amazing finger food appetizer, on top of a salad, on a cheeseboard or charcuterie board. I love to serve this with fig butter that I buy from Trader Joe’s, you can even serve it with honey. It takes minutes to make but the crispy outer layer & ooey gooey cheese makes this out of this world delicious!!!

You can make these ahead of time and air-fry right before serving. This year has been tough for everyone to say the least, but there are some things I’m thankful for that came out of this year. We finally found our dream home and we can’t wait to raise our kids there. I’m thankful for my family and their health. Also thankful for YOU ALL (my community) that has grown so much this year. I hope 2021 brings lot more happiness, clam, and stability in everyone’s lives. I hope you guys have a safe & healthy NYE & let’s hope for a better year for the world.

As always; Stay happy, stay hungry!


Prep time: 5 minutesCook time: 5 minutesTotal time: 10 minutesMakes: 25 Balls

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz goat cheese (1 log) 
  • 1 tsp curry powder 
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric 
  • 1 tbsp Cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp almond milk (oat or any other type of milk you have is fine as well)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch + 3-4 tbsp water, mixed together

Directions:

  1. In a bowl add in goat cheese, curry powder, red chili powder, garlic powder, turmeric, cilantro, and milk.

    Mix everything really well. (you can blitz this in a food processor as well).

  2. Take about 1- 1 1/2 tsp of the curried goat cheese mixture and roll it into balls.

    Put the tray in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. This allows the cheese to harden up again & helps with hold its shape.

  3. Dip the balls into the cornstarch slurry. Then roll it into the breadcrumbs mixture.

  4. Spray the goat cheese balls with cooking spray. Air fry for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees.

  5. Serve hot & ENJOY!!
