Biscutlets are like scotch eggs except it has tuna and potato instead of sausage meat. It uses the same tuna and potato mixture as for cutlets , which is pressed onto boiled egg half. Then rolled in breadcrumbs and then deep fried.
1 can tuna
500g potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 medium onion, sliced
5 curry leaves or some mint finely chopped
1 tsp ground black pepper
juice of 1 lime
6-8 eggs hard boiled and shelled.
1 extra egg
dried bread crumbs
oil for deep frying
The potato mixture is the same method as for cutlets but to make your life easier I will explain it again.
Place onions in a bowl along with lime juice and salt. If you like it extra hot add in a finely sliced chilli. Wearing gloves, squish the onions till the juices run out and the onions go soft.
Add mint or curry leaves, pepper and tuna. mix well.
Halve each egg . Take one half of an egg , take about a small ball of the potato mixture and shape it over the egg half so it looks like its replacing the cut half off the egg. Repeat with the rest.
Take two bowls. crack and egg in one and beat lightly. In to the other add dried bread crumbs. Dip each egg cutlet into egg and then roll in breadcrumbs.
Heat oil to fry and deep fry each egg cutlet carefully. Dont let the oil get too hot as the the potato mixture might start to burst.
Drain on kitchen paper and serve.
