Crumbed Paella Cakes

1:31 am on 10 October 2009


  • 3 eggs
  • dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 tpsn of oil
  • ½ tpsn of salt
  • 1 tbsn of water
  • 1 tps curry powder 
  • oil for frying


Into a bowl, crack the eggs, pour a teaspoon of oil,  one tablespoon of water, add the salt and 1 tpsn of curry powder if you like it (I do). Beat briefly with a fork.

In another bowl, place your breadcrumbs.

Take your cooled Paella and using your hands, create medium size patties by rolling roughly half a cup of the Paella into a ball, then flattening slightly with the palm of your hand. Set aside.

Take a Paella patty in your hand, dip in the egg mixture and turn so the whole exterior of the patty is covered. Next, roll in the dried breadcrumbs. Set aside. Continue with all the formed patties.

In a pan, heat some oil. Place then Paella patties in the oil to cook, turn once each side has browned. Continue until you have cooked them all.
