potato, peeled washed and cut into circles
spring onion, chopped finely
half bunch cilantro, chopped finely
egg, beaten and used for coating purposes before deep drying
( at least 2)
( for frying)
- Most people deep fry the potatoes,drain the oil and then mash them in a dry bowl. Boiling ,however is a healthier alternative and I have done it a lot of times. Works either way.
- Throw in all the chopped ingredients including shallots and mix thoroughly.
- Season well and shape into medium sized balls with the palms of your hands before flattening.
- Coat begedil in the beaten eggs and fry till lightly browned.
