Pumpkin Croquette

Monday, June 15, 2009





When i asked sis to get me pumpkin from the market, i got a shock when she bought a big pumpkin (almost 3 kg) home.   cool myspace layouts   OMG!  What am i going to do with this much pumpkin? I had originally wanted to cook some pumpkin soup only, but this is way too much!

In a panic, i search the net for ways to cook the pumpkin. And i came across a recipe for mayonnaise croquette at My Kitchen’s blog. From the photo she posted, they look delicious and even though her recipe is for mayonnaise croquette, using potato, i thought substituting with pumpkin should not be a problem at all. So i went ahead to make it.

myspace layouts Hooray! They really are wonderfully delicious even though the making of it is quite tedious, while worth the effort. 

Yum yum!
