Recipe : Indian Style Spicy Scotch Eggs - Nargisi Kofta
Scotch Eggs are a great way of using up leftover mince and they are very yummy too. I don't have any post-frying pictures, as they disappeared so quickly!
These ones were made with leftover low fat pork mince
I made this minced meat recipe of mine without the tomatoes or the peas. But you can use any recipe you like.
Take the leftover mince and potatoes and grind it in the food processor (add water if it isn't grinding & then later slow cook on a low flame to dry it out to the right consistency)
Add fresh coriander leaves and fresh chilli chopped.
You can fry these as it is for cutlets.
Deep fry them as meat balls and use in your favourite pasta sauce or Indian curry.
But to make Nargisi Koftas:
Boil eggs, cool, peel and dry completely before encasing it in the mince.
I sliced the eggs in half before covering with mince, but you can make them whole and slice before serving if you prefer
Dip in beaten egg & coat with rawa/semolina (optional - makes it crispy) and fry on a low flame with a little oil (they can also be deep fried)
I make this with beef, chicken or lean pork mince.
They get gobbled up so quickly.
You can even stuff them in burger buns or pita breads for a more filling meal.
