    A Scotch egg in sauce - heavenly pairing! I made only half the recipe, and used garlic-ginger paste and kefir, otherwise followed the recipe. I did use garam masala, which I love. I have to say that I intend to make just the meat mixture to form into meatballs and add into curries - it is very delicious. I did use pork. One thing, you may want more sauce. I made close to the whole quantity listed, so as to use one can of tomato sauce, and it wasn't enough, to my taste, for the two Scotch eggs I made. So you might want to consider increasing the amount. Anyway, this wasn't much effort and really an outstanding result.
