1) In a pan, mix together potatoes with butter, walnuts, curry powder, egg and milk.
2) With a wooden spoon, beat the mixture well and add enough fresh milk to make a smooth, but a stiff mixture.
3) Let cool and divide the mixture into 8 portions.
4) Coat the portions with 2 oz. desiccated coconut, rolled oats or wheatgerm and mould into flat oblongs of 1/2-inch thickness.
5) Brown gently in hot oil on both sides and drain the excess oil.

6) Arrange croquettes on a hot dish and garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of cress. Serve separately any sauce of your choice, preferably a mushroom sauce or celery sauce as an accompaniment.
