Begedil Recipe

Begedil is basically mashed potato shaped into patties, coated with egg and fried. It’s one of my all-time favourite comfort food. I was looking for a recipe on the internet and didn’t find one I really liked so I made it up as I went. It turned out very good, especially with the minced beef variation and Cereal Prawns coating!

Begedil (Fried Potato Patties)
4 large potatoes – skin peeled, diced, boiled and mashed
3 spring onions, sliced
2 tbsp fried shallots
150g minced beef + 1 tbsp curry powder – mix together, fry till beef is cooked
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
1/2 packet of Cereal Prawns (optional)
Oil for deep frying

1. Mix together mashed potatoes, spring onions, fried shallots and cooked minced beef.
2. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Shape into golf balls and flatten into patties.
4. Heat oil to medium-high heat.
5. Coat patties in egg then cereal prawns coating (optional) and fry a few at a time.

Makes about 21.

Tip: Make sure you check the temperature of the oil between batches by placing a drop of egg into the oil. If it fries quickly and floats to the top straight away, it’s too hot. It should sizzle with small bubbles and slowly rise to the surface.
