DESCRIPTION

In the '30's and '40's, thrifty homemakers frequently made use of leftover ingredients -- mashed potatoes or other cooked vegetables -- in croquettes (delicate little fried cakes). This version calls for undiluted poi but mashed, cooked taro was often used in this way, too.

--------------------------

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 C onion (minced) Butter
  • 3 T parsley (minced)
  • 1 C poi
  • 1C Plain mashed potatoes
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 2 T flour

--------------------------

INSTRUCTIONS

Preparation: Sauté 1/2 cup minced onion in butter with 3 tablespoons minced parsley. Blend 1 cup each undiluted poi and plain mashed potatoes with onion and parsley: add salt to taste and 2 rounded tablespoons flour. Form into small patties. Make a small indentation on top of each cake and put a dollop of butter in it: bake on buttered baking sheet in 350-degree oven for 20 minutes or until a golden crisp. For pupus (appetizers), deep-fry in 350-degree oil until golden brown. Serve immediately.
