Vegetarian croquettes filled with Cottage cheese, onions and green chilies. The beauty of croquettes is that they’re crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The no potato version of croquettes are delicious and comparatively lighter. Super easy to prepare, croquettes bring a classy touch to any party.
