Egg Chop or Dimer Chop Recipe

Delicious Egg chop

 

Egg chop is a lip smacking deep-fried snack option. It is made from boiled egg and boiled potatoes. I first time had egg-chop in Varanasi where it is available on almost on all the egg stalls so you can easily get your hands on it. These deep fried ball shaped chops are bound to attract you. Whenever I am in Varanasi, I try to relish kachoris, samosas, chaats, sweets and yes…egg-chop. The mention of egg-chops makes me nostalgic and I start missing Banaras.  It’s very popular in Bengal too by the name of “Dimer Chop or Egg Devil”. I read that they make it in two ways either the egg is coated with mashed potatoes or minced meat. If you love eggs like me then do check this recipe of Egg Pepper Fry.

Egg Chop

Egg chop is one of my favorite snack and must-have item when I am in Varanasi. The egg chops topped with green coriander chutney, chopped onion and some chaat masala sprinkled over it tastes simply amazing. It is very easy to make and you can be served to your egg-e-terian guests too. It’s a hit item for the kid’s tiffin box also. You can make some changes in the recipe like making the mashed potatoes more or less spicy as per your preference. However, to give it more crispy texture people roll the chops in bread crumbs before frying since I was not having crumbs prepared so I added cornflour to the potato mixture which acted as a binding agent during frying. I strongly feel that the green coriander chutney enhances the taste of these chops. Will be sharing the recipe of green coriander chutney on the blog.

If you are not adding cornflour in the potatoes mixture you can dip the balls in cornflour batter and coat it with bread crumbs. It will give more crispy texture to the egg chops.
