Blogging Marathon Entry - Scotch Eggs!





   I have been looking forward to this Blogging Marathon for a long time! Although I have not been following all the blogs in the group, my daughter is a fan of cooking4allseasons.blogspot.in  and the Andhra Mutton Fry recipe that Srivalli has posted is a big hit in our family. She introduced me to this marathon and it amazed me to see so very many talented people pouring their life experiences, family recipes, children's stories and so much more. I immediately signed up for this marathon and made all the recipes in advance.

   But unfortunately, a wedding I attended day before yesterday gave me food poisoning and I was unable to post yesterday's entry. So I am posting two entries today to make up for the lost day :( 

   This recipe I learnt many many years back and I cannot even recall the last time I made it! But I do remember that this was very well received. Somehow, as we grew older we tried to eat more consciously and this fried food didn't find its way into our regular cooking. But when I sat down to think of things to make with egg, I simply had to share this recipe! Make it on a cold wintry day and serve it with chutney or sauce and its the ultimate comfort food!

Ingredients :
1. Potatoes : 4 (medium size) boiled
2. Eggs :  3 nos (hard boiled)
3. Bread crumbs : 1 to 1 1/2 table spoons
4. Salt and Pepper :  To taste
5. Oil :  For frying
For coating :
1. Egg : 1
2. Bread crumbs : 1/2 cup (approx)

Method :
1. Boil and peel the eggs and keep aside.
2. Boil,peel and mash the potatoes.
3. Add salt, pepper and bread crumbs to the mashed potatoes. Mix them nicely without any lump. 
4. Beat the egg with a little salt and pepper and keep it ready.
5. Take a boiled egg and wrap it fully with the mashed potato mix as shown below.



6. Now dip it in the beaten egg and coat with bread crumbs(roll it in the bread crumbs all around).
7. Repeat it for the other eggs and keep them ready.


8. Heat oil and deep fry them on medium heat (oil should not be very hot).
9. Drain and serve hot with green chutney or ketchup.



10. It can be served as a snack, for breakfast or as a side dish for continental dinner! Hope people try it and enjoy it!
