Indian Scotch Eggs Recipe / Crispy Scotch Eggs Recipe

I love scotch eggs, i have tasted it in few restaurants here and i dont why i didn't share this simple recipe in my blog till now..Finally i made it and sharing it..This is a indian style recipe, i added onions, chillies, coriander leaves and few spices into the meat and wrapped it around the egg and deep fried..It was delicious..

Cooking the egg properly is the key, i like them to be cooked in a way so the yolks are still soft and squidgy, i dont like powdery yolks. So i will never recommend you to cook the eggs more than 4 mins. Check the written part for detail method.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
