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 :-\

thank you sir..!

milk prevents the croquettes from bursting.

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

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


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