• 1/2 kg potato, peeled washed and cut into circles

  • half bunch cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup fried shallots
  • egg, beaten and used for coating purposes before deep drying (at least 2)
  • white pepper
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • enough oil (for frying)
  • 1 Most people deep fry the potatoes,drain the oil and then mash them in a dry bowl. Boiling ,however is a healthier alternative and I have done it a lot of times. Works either way.
  • 2 Throw in all the chopped ingredients including shallots and mix thoroughly.
  • 3 Season well and shape into medium sized balls with the palms of your hands before flattening.
  • 4 Coat begedil in the beaten eggs and fry till lightly browned.
