Pegedil Daging or Meat & Potato Patties are usually served as a snack with chilli sauce or as a side dish to the main meal. This recipe’s by a friend, Tasha who served it with Soto Ayam (Soto Chicken) and Cili Kicap Manis..
- 5 large or 450g potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
- 500g minced meat (beef, lamb, pork or half-half)
- 1 large onion, peeled, finely chopped
- 6 stalks spring onion, finely chopped
- 2 large eggs
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce, optional
- Boil potatoes for abt 10 mins or till soft. Mash potatoes in a large bowl and put aside. (I used pre-cooked sliced potatoes, microwaved for abt 5 mins in a microwave-safe bowl with cover. Then roughly mash with a fork.)
- Fry chopped onions in a 1 tbsp oil in a preheated wok. Scoop it out, drain on a pc of kitchen paper and put aside. (I used 2 tbsp oil and left fried onions in wok.)
- Using the same wok, heat another 1 tbsp oil and add in minced meat. Fry till cooked. (And then add minced meat which I’d marinated with 1 tbsp light soy sauce and pepper, without additional oil.)
- Add cooked minced meat to mashed potatoes. Then add chopped spring onions and fried onions.
- Season with salt and pepper. (I added 1 tbsp light soy sauce.) Mix all till well combined.
- Wet hands, scoop a handful of mixture and using both hands, press mixture into a golfball-sized ball, flatten it a little and put on a large plate. Continue doing the same till all mixture’s made into slightly flattened balls.
- (Then I put patties in fridge for abt 30 mins, to firm up; so that when I add patties to egg mixture, they don’t break up. Remove patties from fridge.)
- Heat up cleaned wok with some oil ready for deep-frying.
- Beat eggs and put patties into beaten egg mixture and cover patties with beaten eggs.
- Using a spoon, put egg-covered patties with a little egg mixture, carefully into wok. Fry patties on all sides till golden brown. (I shallow-fried my patties.) Drain on kitchen paper of excess oil.
- Serve immediately.
I served them as a snack with Spicy Sweet Chilli Sauce as well as had them as an accompaniment to roasted ham and lettuce salad on another day. Thank you, Tasha.. It was yummy.. 🙂
