Begedil is usually served as a side dish with soto, mee sup or sup tulang. It's a very famous side dish in Nasi Padang. Begedil is easy to prepare in advance and is one recipe that can help you utilize any leftover grilled fried chicken. Everything is shredded and added to a mixture of mashed potatoes, chopped spring onion, garlic and seasoning. The trick to a good begedil is to not overcook your potatoes (so par boil is best) as your patties will become too soft for the frying later.
