Try making these tasty turkey tikka eggs for a party time treat
- Oil, for frying
- 500g (1lb) turkey mince
- 2 level tablespoons tikka curry paste
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon plain flour
- 6 medium eggs, hard-boiled and shelled
- 60-90g (2-3oz) dried white breadcrumbs
- 1 medium egg, beaten
- Mango chutney and salad, to serve
Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or chip pan to 180-190°C.
Mix the turkey mince with the tikka paste, coriander and seasoning and divide into 6 equal portions.
Season the flour with salt and pepper, then coat each egg with a light coating of the seasoned flour.
Tip the breadcrumbs on to a plate. Flatten out each portion of turkey mince and wrap one portion around each egg. Shape into neat, round balls. Dip the balls into the beaten egg to completely coat them and then roll them in the breadcrumbs.
Carefully lower 2-3 eggs into the hot oil and cook them for 6-8 minutes, turning them frequently so that they colour evenly. Remove the eggs from the oil and drain them on absorbent kitchen paper. Cook the remaining eggs. Serve the eggs warm or cold with mango chutney and salad.
