Post marriage, every time I visited my hubby’s hometown Palakkad, , I often had Mutta Bonda (Egg Kebabs) in evenings with steaming cup of tea and loved goring on it. So this weekend , I decided it was time for me to make this easy, simple and delicious Egg kebabs

These kebabs are also often made during Ramzan (Iftaar) and is quite popularly served as snack. This can also be served as an appetizer

*You can bake this kebabs too in the oven, the fried version tastes better than the baked version. Adjust the spices to suit the taste buds. You can add chopped cilantro too to the potato mixture. Adjust the quantity of breadcrumbs as required

**Incase you are unable to shape the potatoes, you can add cornstarch as binder
