Nargisi Kofta / Indian Scotch Eggs

 A scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg covered with meat coating rolled in bread crumbs and then deep fried until nicely cooked. It’s a delicious protein packed snack that can easily make at your home kitchen. Normally sausage meat is used for covering the eggs; but here I use minced blended chicken along with some spice powders and bread slices for covering.

  1. Boiled eggs-4 no’s
  2. Minced chicken- 200 gm
  3. Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
  4. Turmeric powder- ¼ tsp
  5. Pepper powder- 1tsp
  6. Cumin powder- ¼ tsp
  7. Garam masala powder- ¼ tsp
  8. Bread slices-2 no’s
  9. Salt-to taste
  10. Coriander leaves thinly chopped- 1 tbsp
  11. Bread crumbs- 1 cup
  12. Corn flour- 1 tbsp
  • In a blender add minced chicken and blend well to a smooth paste.
  • Mix it with ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, pepper powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, salt and coriander leaves chopped.
  • Blend the two bread slices in a blender to a fine powder.
  • Mix it with the chicken mix.
  • Keep it nearby.
  • Dilute corn flour in ¼ cup of water in deep bowl. Keep it nearby.
  • Add the bread crumbs in a wide bowl.
  • Now grease your hands well with water.
  • Divide the chicken mix in to four parts.
  • Make bowls out of it.
  • Take a bowl and make a thin patty out of it.
  • Add a boiled egg in centre and cover the egg completely with the meat patty.
  • Now dip it in cornflour mix; then coat it with the bread crumbs; so that the scotch eggs evenly coated.
  • Place it on a dry plate and coat all the remaining eggs like this.
  • Deep fry it in the hot oil on low flame until nice golden brown in color (if the flame is high; the inner side didn’t cooked well.)
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot
Tips For a Runny Scotch Egg:
If you need boiled egg with runny centre; Boil the eggs for only 4 minutes; After that quickly add the boiled eggs in to cold water. Rest there for 10 minutes and carefully peel the shell.
