Meatless Scotch eggs recipe. Scotch eggs are popular British pub snack and picnic snack. I made this popular Scottish delicacy in a vegetarian version, as a beetroot scotch egg which is suitable for vegetarians who eat eggs.
Scotch eggs are originally hard boiled eggs which are covered with meat, a batter and crumb and then deep-fried , in this recipe of scotch eggs I made it vegetarian friendly, ovo-lacto Vegetarians to be precise.

Hard boiled eggs are wrapped in a veggie based covering which is healthier and tastes quite good. To make the vegetarian version of scotch eggs for vegetarians who eat eggs, or to Indianize the recipe I usually make my favourite cutlet covering. This time I made the scotch eggs covering with addition of beetroot which makes it quite healthy, adds a lovely taste and make them pretty as pink! Quite literally :D.
Another twist which I added to make it more interesting and spicy was addition of Mologapodi (idli podi) in the yolks. It adds more flavour and some spice to the scotch eggs. This is deep fried version recipe, but if you want to make baked scotch egg these can be baked easily or air fried if that’s your thing.
