Ingredients

FOR THE BROWN SAUCE

  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 100g pitted medjool dates, chopped
  • 30g dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp malt vinegar
  • ½ tbsp black treacle
  • 3 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp English mustard powder

FOR THE CROQUETTES

  • 200g potatoes, diced
  • 190g Waitrose Traditional Bury Black Pudding, skinned and crumbled
  • 3 salad onions, finely sliced
  • ½ tbsp English mustard
  • 25g plain flour, seasoned
  • 2 Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs, beaten
  • 100g Cooks' Ingredients Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 500ml groundnut oil

Method

  1. For the sauce, place all the ingredients into a small saucepan, heat and bring to a simmer, then cook gently for 15 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and leave to cool, then blend with a stick blender to form a smooth sauce.

  2. To make the croquettes, place the diced potato in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the potato is tender. Drain and mash, and allow to cool.

  3. In a large bowl, mix the cold mashed potato, black pudding, salad onions and mustard together until combined. Season well. Divide the mixture equally into 8 and then shape into cylinders with your hand.

  4. Dip each croquette first into the seasoned flour, then the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes until ready to cook.

  5. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan and gently fry the croquettes in batches for 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp. Serve with the brown sauce.
