Scotch Egg (Kerala)

Scotch egg is originally a British delicacy also known as egg devil.  Originally it is hard-boiled egg covered with sausage meat and coated with breadcrumbs and then deep fried in oil.  But here I am sharing the Kerala version of scotch egg, the one we used to get in Kottayam during my childhood days.  This was one of the special dish my grandma used to make very rarely.


Hard-boiled Eggs     4 nos.

Minced meat              1 cup

Onion                          2 big (chopped)

Ground pepper          1/2 teaspoon

Ginger                        1/2″ piece (chopped)

Garlic                          3 pods

Salt                             to taste
Curry leaves               1 sprig

Green chillies 2 nos (chopped)

Garam Masala          1/2 teaspoon

Potato                         1 no (boiled & mashed)

Bread Crumbs           1/2 cup
Egg white                   1 egg

Oil                               2 cups


Heat oil in a pan.  Saute chopped onion.  Add chopped ginger, garlic, green chillies, and curry leaves.  Add minced meat. Add garam masala.  Saute the minced meat till it becomes dry.  Allow the mixture to cool.

 Add mashed potatoes to this mixture and mix well along with required salt.  Coat each boiled egg with this meat mixture and keep aside.  Beat egg white. Coat each scotch egg first in egg white and then in bread crumbs.  Deep fry in oil.   Cut this fried egg into two equal halves with a thread and serve hot.
