How to make it

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and carefully add 8 of the eggs. Cook for 8 minutes, then refresh under cold water, peel and set aside.
  • For the tomato chilli jam, heat oil in medium saucepan and cook cumin seeds 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomatoes, chilli sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and coriander and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Set aside to cool.
  • In a food processor, blend the onion, chilli, coriander, mint and spices until finely chopped, then add to the minces, mixing well with your hands to combine.
  • Roll the boiled eggs in the seasoned flour. Divide the sausage mince into 8 equal portions, and press the sausage mixture carefully around each egg ensuring that there are no holes.
  • Whisk the two remaining eggs in a shallow bowl. Roll each sausage wrapped egg in seasoned flour, then dip each one into the egg mixture before finally coating in the breadcrumbs.
  • Fill a large saucepan or wok one-third full with oil and place over a high heat until the oil is hot enough to turn a cube of bread golden brown in 30 seconds or a sugar thermometer reads 180°C.
  • Place the eggs in the oil, 4 at a time, and fry for 8 minutes, turning frequently. Drain on absorbent paper.
  • Serve eggs cold or warm with tomato chilli jam.
