Add the meat mince to a pot with the roughly chopped onion, ginger, garlic and spices such as Turmeric Powder, garam masala, salt, pepper, roughly chopped green chillies and the dried red chilli. Also pour in the water and cook on slow to medium heat until all the water is absorbed and the ingredients are cooked. Important: the meat content should be dry!
Allow to cool after cooking and then blend to a smooth texture with the lime juice.
Add the meat mix to a mixing bowl and add the flaked slice bread with the egg. Mix it all so that all the ingredients are well combined.
Keep in the fridge for 20 minutes. If the croquette mixture is cooled, it's easier to form them.
Form your croquettes into cylinders or sausages as shown. The exact size and shape doesn't really matter. Just keep in mind that they will grow a bit in size while frying due to the egg. Then roll the shaped croquettes in the semolina.
Heat up a pan with enough oil to shallow fry your goan beef croquettes on all sides until they are golden and crisp.
