When done, add the mashed potato and mix well until well combined. When done, set aside in a bowl. (you can also add minced chicken to this potato masala for making this snack more yummier).

  • So let's prepare the egg kebab. 
  • Take each hard-boiled eggs and roll it in cornflour well. Set aside.
  • Now grease your palm and roll out a medium sized ball from the prepared potato mixture. Flatten it your palms and place an egg (rolled in cornflour) inside and cover with the potato masala. Shape it well within your palm.
  • Repeat the same with the remaining eggs.
