At times, it becomes difficult for me to keep up with my kids demands. But since I love cooking, I don’t complain about it. We play this game in which my kids give me a combination of two ingredients, and I am supposed to come up with a dish using both of them together. Sometimes it is a lot of fun, but sometimes I get tired wracking my brains. This week, the two ingredients given to me were eggs (ande) and minced mutton (keema). I was relieved because I had been thinking of this recipe for a while now. I prepared Stuffed Eggs, wherein I stuffed some hard-boiled eggs with keema, and then dipped them in an egg white-corn flour batter (which helped in binding), followed by rolling them in a bread crumb mixture and then deep-frying.
Care must be taken while deep-frying, as the eggs are supposed to be fried on medium flame. The stuffed eggs turn a nice crispy golden-brown colour on being properly cooked. The excess oil can be drained out using kitchen tissues. Chopped coriander leaves (dhaniya) give a fresh tinge and can be used for garnish. These stuffed eggs taste fantastic when served with chutney or sauce. My kids loved this dish so much that they ate it in instalments, in the process saving some for lunch, dinner and dessert.
