  • Egg (മുട്ട) - 5 Nos
  • Potato (ഉരുളക്കിഴങ്ങ്) - 2 Nos
  • Ginger (ഇഞ്ചി) - 1 inch piece
  • Green chilli (പച്ചമുളക്) - 2 Nos
  • Shallots (ചെറിയ ഉള്ളി) - 12 Nos

  • Bread Crumbs (റൊട്ടിപ്പൊടി) - ½ Cup
  • Cooking oil (എണ്ണ) - for deep frying
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) – to taste


Step 1

Pressure cook potatoes by adding salt and enough water to cover it. Mash it and keep aside.

Step 2

Chop ginger, green chillies, shallots and curry leaves finely.

Step 3

Heat 1 table spoon cooking oil in a pan and put finely chopped ginger, green chillies, shallots, curry leaves and a little salt. Saute till golden brown.

Step 5

Step 7

Dip each ball in the beaten egg (remaining 1 egg) and roll it on the bread crumbs.

Step 8

Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

    Hi Shaan,
    Mouth watering recipe. I want to try this. One small doubt. Is it deep fry or shall I try with pan with little oil?

    • posted by Shaan Geo on March 24, 2013

      Hi Vasantha, Thank you very much for your nice words. You can deep fry or shallow fry (frying in a pan by adding a little oil) it.
