Egg Cutlet Recipe

Egg cutlet or ‘Dimer Devil’ as it is popularly known, is the Bengali version of deviled eggs. It is a famous street food of Kolkata. These oval-shaped balls are prepared with half hard-boiled eggs wrapped in a soft potato mixture, dipped in a bread crumb batter and then subsequently deep-fried in oil. The name Dimer Devil is related to the term devil in cooking, which refers to the fiery and spicy flavour of the dish, due to its hot seasoning.

In this recipe, I have used four hard-boiled eggs (anda) and halved them. The cooked and mashed potatoes (aaloo) should be soft and tender. Hot spice (garam masala) powder is the secret ingredient used for egg cutlet. Along with it, finely chopped onions (pyaaz) and other spices are also added to the mashed potato mixture. These can be added according to taste. The potato mixture is used to coat the halved eggs, by pressing gently around them. These coated eggs are then dipped in a raw beaten egg mixture. This acts as the binding agent and helps the bread crumbs to stick around the eggs. These are refrigerated for a while and deep-fried in a hot pan, until they turn golden-brown. The excess oil can be removed by soaking with kitchen tissues. They taste scrumptious with tomato ketchup. So the next time someone serves Dimer Devil, unleash the devil within you.
