Here is a delicious recipe for Scotch eggs that will appeal to the Indian palate. Do make this quick snack that can also be served for breakfast.
Scotch eggs are believed to have originated in the UK, as a picnic food. Fully packed with protein power these can also be served as a breakfast dish to give you a kickstart for an energetic day, or can be served as a snack.
The preparation is easy. The recipe I have here is a modified version of Scotch eggs. Here I am using soya chunks instead of sausage meat, so that those of my readers who do not eat meat but do eat eggs can enjoy it too. For those who do eat meat, try Scotch eggs with sausage meat instead of soya chunks – experiment!
Eggs – 5
Soya chunks – 300 gms
Chopped onion – 2
Chopped tomato – 1
Chopped fresh coriander leaves – ¼ cup
Crushed peppercorns – 2 tsp
Cooked and mashed potatoes – 4
Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
All purpose flour – 1 cup
Bread crumbs – 1 cup
Oil for frying
Boil 4 of the eggs in water till they are cooked, maybe for 6-10 mins, depending on how soft or hardboiled you like them.
Remove from water. Peel the shells off and keep the eggs ready.
Cook the soya chunks and grind them coarsely.
Saute the onion till it is slightly brown in colour. Add the tomatoes and sauté well.
Now add the mashed potatoes and the ground soya chunks.
Add the spices, fresh coriander, and garam masala. Mix everything well together. Remove from the fire.
Form small balls from this mix. Make a hole in the middle and insert a boiled egg into this and cover the egg completely with this mixture. Roll in the flour.
Beat the remaining egg. Dip the covered egg in the beaten egg and roll in bread crumbs.
Take a pan and pour some oil into it. Then deep fry in oil till all sides become golden brown in colour.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
