Dimer Devil, also Egg Croquette is a very popular Indian street food, particularly famous in the eastern states of India. Here, hard-boiled eggs are cut in halves, the yolk is mixed with a spicy mix and then stuffed back into the egg whites. The egg halves are then joined and coated with a keema or potato cover and battered fry.
This dimer devil is a Bengali style evening snack, often served with a bowl of puffed rice, sliced onion, green chillies and a cup of tea.
Prepare the filling for Dimer Devil by frying finely chopped onion, ginger and garlic in Mustard Oil over a low heat. Add some salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder to this.
Once it turns brown in colour, take it off the heat and allow to cool
Slice the eggs lengthwise and scoop out the yolks in a bowl. Mix the fried filling into this and mix it well
Stuff it back into the egg whites. Join the halves of eggs and keep them aside
Take the remaining filling and add boiled & mashed potato and a slice of bread into it. Season with salt. Mix it well to make it smooth. It should be enough to coat 2 eggs here.
Divide the mashed potato mix into two equal parts. Take one half and coat one egg with it. (Check for detailed images in the blogpost)
Repeat with the second egg
Whisk an egg in a bowl.
Take some breadcrumbs on another plate and prepare it for coating the croquettes. You can flavour the breadcrumbs here with Parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, dried herbs, etc.
Take the wrapped egg, and dip it in the egg wash. Now, roll it on the breadcrumbs to coat it completely. Repeat this step atleast twice
Repeat this with the other egg as well.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan and then deep fry these croquettes till they turn brown.
