So when I was dating a Japanese guy, his mom would always make him food and send it back to school with him whenever he went home. And his mom was a really, really good cook. She made these little roundish things, he said they were called "croquet", and that Japanese people love them (though I don't think it's originally a Japanese dish). Anyway, it was really good, and had vegetables, and some other good unidentifiable foodstuffs in it, and we ate it with tonkatsu sauce. Mmmm.... *drools* Anyone know what I'm talking about? I've searched for recipes online, but none of them sound quite right. She had a couple recipes, one made with mashed potatoes, and the other made with (i think) crab meat.
If anyone could help, I would very much appreciate it. I'd ask him, but he's been rather evasive since we've broken up. Go figure.
