Remember how I talked about how to make your picky children eat the rainbow? One of the tips is camouflaging their least favorite ingredients into the dish. This air fried rainbow begedil (potato patty) is a good example to sneak in vegetables.
100g minced meat (pork, chicken or beef are all fine)
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 onion coarsely chopped
2 large potatoes
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup frozen vegetables (green peas, diced carrot, sweet corn, leave to defrost at room temperature for 30mins)
Pinch of salt
Dash of pepper (optional)
1 egg, beaten (for dipping)
1-2 tablespoon corn flour (for coating)
Cheddar cheese cubes (optional)
Serves 4 adults
Marinate mince meat in sesame oil, soy sauce, pepper and salt.
Caramelize the onion. Then add meat. Sautee.
Peel the potatoes and quarter them. Toss with oil to coat.
Air fry at 200C for 18 minutes until soft enough to mash.
Combine the cooked minced meat, mashed potatoes and vegetables.
Mix well and shape into patties with your hands.
Optional- insert some cheese into the center of the patties.
Dip each patty in egg followed by a bit of corn flour, just to coat lightly so that the patty retains its shape in the air fryer.
Spray or coat with a bit of oil and air fry for 8 minutes at 200C. Turn around and air dry for another 4 minutes (If deep frying, skip the flour. Just dip in egg and deep fry directly until golden brown).
Have it with some mayonnaise/chilli sauce or ketchup.
Or pair it with some cooked pasta alla carbonara tossed with olive oil for a quick meal!
While pasta is cooking, mix raw egg in a bowl with cheese and black pepper until whites and yolks are mixed, cook bacon in strips or cubes in a frying pan. When pasta is ready mix everything together in another bowl (not a hot one) and mix well!
This is our version of mix grill for my birthday. Absolutely delicious.
