A big HELLOOOOO to all my friends who were waiting for my come back and here i'm with yet another fantastic Temptation.
I know its been quite some time since i blogged, close to 3 months i guess and in the mean time i received a lot of emails and messages from some of you concerned about my health and my whereabouts.
Iam absoultely fine, its just that i wanted some kind of break for a while....and now that iam back, without wasting much of your time let me jump into action once again.
I'm a Food Network fan and some of my favourite chefs are Giada(Everyday Italian), Sandra Lee (Semi-homemade), Ina Garten(Barefoot Contessa) and latest in my list are Patrick and Gina Neely (Down home with the neelys). A couple of days back i was watching their show and was so impressed with one of their recipes that i tried it immediately and just loved it.
They called it Fried Deviled Eggs. Devil is a name given for highly-seasoned broiled or fried dishes, also for hot ingredients. According to the food historians the practice of "devilling" food "officially" began sometime during the 18th century in England.
If you are an egg lover,this is the snack you'll drool over.Its a must try recipe and the best part is its tooooooo simple to make.
Here's my version:
Cook Time:10 min
Yield: 3 to 4 servings
You will need:
4 tsps mayonnaise
1/4 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1/2 tsp hot sauce
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp chilli powder (you can use pepper instead)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs ( i used Contadina-italian style)
Spring onions/ Parsley, for garnish
Oil, for frying
Add the eggs to a large saucepan filled with cold water.
Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit in the water for sometime.
Peel the eggs and slice lengthwise. Remove the yolks to a bowl.
Add the mayonnaise, Dijon, lemon zest, chives, hot sauce, salt and chilli powder.
Mash the yolks together with a wooden spoon.
Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed. Fill the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, add 1 cup of flour and season with salt and chilli powder.
In another bowl, beat the eggs, in a third bowl, add 1 cup of bread crumbs.
Dip the eggs into the flour, then the egg and finally into the crumbs.
Gently put the eggs into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown.
Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray.
Season with salt and chilli powder and garnish with parsley or spring onions.
This is the easiest and best starter ever.
And when you cut the egg into half and put it in your mouth, its just heavenly.
Hope you enjoyed this recipe. I might be going on a break once again as i will b visiting my home country shortly but i promise i'll be back soon.
Let me know how you liked this Temptation!!
