As ramazan (Ramadan) is approaching we love to have some snakes for iftar time. The recipe that I am sharing today is a make and freeze snake chicken and potato croquettes. These are crispy, crunchy made with mashed potatoes, chicken, capsicum, cheese and very few spices. As much as we love to east the crunchy chicken croquettes we cannot ignore the fact that they are on pricy side. So prefer the homemade ones. Though these croquettes are best enjoyed as snack with tea (chai), or for kids lunchbox but you may also enjoy these as chicken and potato croquettes-iftar special. Make and freeze these for this ramadan, I am sure your family will love this.
