oooooh!excuse me faize!I understood my mistake.sorry it was really bad!I wanted to write "cook" but I did a big mistake if you can please change that :-\

antoniraj (author)2014-01-21

looks delicious... why did you dip them in milk..? is there any specific reason..?

faiza007 (author)antoniraj2014-01-21

thank you sir..!

milk prevents the croquettes from bursting.

its not necessary..but i prefer to coat potatoes in milk instead of egg..

alireza90 (author)faiza0072014-02-07

milk give a delicious taste.but i think on this object we must avoid from milk cuz milk and chili make you puke!

neo71665 (author)faiza0072014-01-24

Gonna have to try milk, I've always used egg for mine. Wonder if buttermilk would add anything, hmmm

faiza007 (author)neo716652014-01-29

don't know about buttermilk..but yea it sounds great..

i will try it for sure..! :)

alireza90 (author)2014-01-28

faiza007 (author)alireza902014-01-29

good..!! post some pictures here.. :)

alireza90 made it! (author)faiza0072014-02-07

i made it but i forgot something and it was very very hot!just like a hot chili...cuz i added a lot of pepper and it was a big wrong...

finally i tried to gulp it hardly though after eating my face found a red color i compeled to throw it away!i forgot about mixing with bread crumbs and cheddar that night i went out and bought ingredients but at cocking i didn't use them and i think you should use egg to making a layer on these cheesy potatos.also i didn't capture it but i made a snowman because there was heavy snowing and now all of them are going to melt \ :

see my snow man...
