This recipe is inspired from two dishes I tasted and loved.
Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions and saute till soft
Don't let them caramelize
Add ginger and garlic paste and saute for a few secs
Add the grated beet and saute till its almost dry
Now add cooked potato thats very well mashed
Mix and saute well till the mixture is dry
Add salt, a pinch of sugar, garam masala, cumin powder and red chili powder
Add green chilies and turn the heat off
Set the mixture aside to cool
Boil water in a sauce pan
Once the water comes to a boil, slowly add all the eggs in the pot
Cook for 4-5 mins with a rolling boil
Drain the eggs and run under cold water
Peel the eggs and set aside
Make slurry with the all purpose flour and water. The slury should be thin but thick enough the coat the egg.
Take the breadcrumbs in a bowl and season with some salt
Take one eggs and fourth of the beet mixture.
Cover the egg completely with the beet mixture, making sure the coating is even and no gaps. Press the coating tightly, this ensures that the coating will not fall off while frying
Dip this beet covered egg in the slurry, ensure it oats the whole surface
Roll it in the breadcrumbs
Fry the egg in the oil on medium heat till its crisp all around
Let it cool and then cut it in half carefully. Since the egg is half boiled, the yolk would be soft and spreadable
Serve with pickled onions and Kashundi
