    im actually from pakistan and this is a common dish for us

    they make really well using quail eggs as they are small


    my 20 week pullets started laying eggs and they where tiny so my wife saved a load just for making them




    they are basically like scotch eggs but using lamb or beef and made into a curry


    very tasty

    i love em
