Korokke are a casual food similar to the French croquette, consisting of breaded, deep fried patties, typically filled with mashed potatoes or cream sauce. They come in a variety of flavors with various additions of vegetables, ground meat or seafood. Some parts of Japan also have their own regional korokke, featuring famous local ingredients such as beef or crab.

Plain potato korokke tend to be shaped into flat oval patties made of mashed potatoes, and might be flavored with ground meat or onions. Many other varieties of potato korokke are sold as well, and are typically named for their flavoring ingredients such as beef, pumpkin vegetable and curry.
