The Bengali Scotch

Dim er devil = king of leftovers.

I had mashed potatoes from the Christmas dinner, and I always have boiled eggs. This is typically an evening snack, but since it's the long weekend here we had these for breakfast. Bad us.

Boil eggs. Boil, peel and mash potatoes with ginger-garlic paste and green chillies, and chat masala. Cut the boiled eggs in half. Make a ball of mashed potato mix (after it's dry and cooled) and flatten. Make a half egg sit in the potato flattened ball and have the potato cover the egg completely. Set up a breading station: roll the egg-potato ball in flour, then egg wash and then bread crumbs and deep-fry. Serve with kasundi!

PS: If you have minced meat left over, include that (cooked) in the potato mixture.
