From the mixture form balls about   the size of an egg and flat them with your palms, place them in to the flat platter.
In a large frying pan heat about 1 cup of oil over low- medium heat.
Place an egg into bowl and beat with fork.
Place ½ cup bread crumbs in separate little bowl.

    It is interesting to note how certain foods are prepared across cultures with their own unique touch. In India we make similar patties but with addition of whole garam masala. Thanks for sharing.

    I love simple meat dishes like this, they’re the best! A lot of your cooking reminds me of some of my moms, we’re Romanian, so I’m sure that has to do with some of the similarities 🙂

    These look lovely! Very interesting to have cream and mayo in the patty itself – definitely would love to try this 🙂

    Kak dyela, Inessa? I love Eastern European food! I love the fact that you have mayo in the recipe, must add a tangy taste to it. Thanks for following me back or I should say, Spasiba! You know, I run a Friday Cooking Club on my site and we have monthly themes. Our theme in March is Eastern European food. If you’re up for it, I would love to have you do a guest post! Di svidanya! xx
