Baked Curry Potato Croquettes

I like Japanese potato croquettes my mom made for me but I have never cooked fried food since I move to New York.
We live in 1 bed room apartment in Manhattan and most of apartment have small exhaust (or even no exhaust) on stove under microwave and not strong enough to cook fried stuff.
I buy cooked fried stuff when I want to eat them.

So I decided to make oven fried croquettes like that I did Non-fried Chicken Karaage – oven fried chicken or Non-fried crispy chicken or Seasoned fried chicken – yang nyeom (korean) fried chicken.

Here is the recipe if you are interested.
