Begedil (Potato cutlets)

These are my all-time favorite comfort food and it is also my hubby's favorite now.
Begedil is a deep fried potato cutlets. Mashed, shaped, coated and fried.
It is a common Malay side dish. Usually you have it with Nasi Padang or Mee Soto. 

They are so easy to make.

You can either boil or deep-fry the potatoes. Works both ways. I used 3 medium size potatoes. Remove the skin and cut into cubes. This time, I boiled  the potatoes but I much preferred them deep-fried.

Mash the potatoes in a dry bowl.

Some like it plain and others like to add cooked ground beef. If you like to add ground beef or chicken, make sure to cook the meat ahead and set aside to cool.

Here, I added cooked ground beef, chopped cilantro and spring onions, fried shallots, salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.

Shape into medium sized balls with the palms of your hands before flattening.

Lastly, coat begedil in beaten eggs and deep-fry till lightly browned.

Hi lynn,
you might want to add a bit of nutmeg powder to the begedil mixture as it'll give out a nice scent. Try it & see if you like it :-)
