Servings 6


  • Large pot
  • Frying pan
  • Mixing bowls
  • Potato masher or fork
  • Spatula
  • Kitchen thermometer (optional)


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, or until they are soft enough to mash. Drain and mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork.
  • In a frying pan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes soft and translucent. Add the chopped carrot and celery, and cook for 3-4 minutes until they are soft. Add the frozen green peas and corn kernels and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.
  • Add the mashed potatoes to the frying pan and mix everything well. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • In a small bowl, mix the all-purpose flour and plant-based milk to make a batter.
  • Shape the potato mixture into small balls or patties. Dip each ball or patty into the batter and then coat with breadcrumbs.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Fry the korokke in the oil over medium heat until they are golden brown on both sides. Use a kitchen thermometer to ensure the oil is at 350°F.
  • Once done, place the korokke on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
  • Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
