AFF Japan – Korokke (Potato and Meat Croquettes)


Hello, hello readers…I know I have been MIA lately, actually for the whole month of September probably, haha. I’m doing a few things at the same time…J-man has been settling down steadily in his new school and I’m happy for that but that also means the dreaded word ‘HOMEWORK’! Mostly Mandarin homework which I have to struggle to teach him myself seeing how I can’t even read or write Mandarin. Like duck leading a chicken.

I have also been trying to change my daughter’s sleeping patterns so she won’t have to take so many naps during the day and will go to bed early at night at a decent hour. So far it has been quite a struggle seeing the time when both kids fell sick with the sniffles and cough.

But all that aside…MFF is over as some of you might’ve known. So what’s next? Well, we have progressed on to AFF! (Asian Food Fest) This cook-along is on a much larger scale in terms of geography and well, it’s kinda exciting if you ask me. 🙂 More details here. So this month of October is Japan! And Japanese food is definitely not new or even unheard off anymore. I really love Japanese style of cooking. It feels very basic but I personally think to get the authentic results you need, it’s all in the technique of cooking.

My earliest inspirations to Japanese cuisine started off with this YouTuber Cooking with Dog. Although the narration in the early days was heavy-accented but her steps for making Japanese dishes were easy, precise and well-documented. I’m hooked on her channel since. For this month of October I will concentrate on doing Japanese dishes and here is my first submission. Most recipes are resourced from Nami of Just One Cookbook, another great food blogger on Japanese dishes. These are potato and meat croquettes.


It is simple to prepare albeit a bit lengthy but mind you, portion-wise it can actually stretch pretty far and they’re rather substantial as a meal in itself so you won’t feel the need to want rice or anything else. My son really loved this croquettes and ate quite a few on one sitting. You can shape them into patties like I have or even a more rounded-thicker shape. I like patties because they’re easy to flip over when frying.


I am submitting this to Asian Food Fest Japan Month

  1. Hi Sharon! Wow these korokke look so delicious!! Thank you so much for trying this recipe and I’m so happy to hear that your son really enjoyed this recipe! It’s been my most favorite food that my mom cooks and until this day I feel her korokke is better than how I make. My son loves this so much and he asks to make at least once a month. 🙂 I bought ingredients over the weekend and am about to make this week. 🙂 Thank you for the kind mention, Sharon!

      Haha, no worries Nami! It’s your recipe after all and an awesome one at that. Yeah, sometimes eating rice everyday is so boring so it’s nice to have a change and these korrokes fit the bill!
