This recipe first appeared in Delia's Frugal Food.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, then stir in the flour, curry powder and salt. Cook for 2 minutes, then gradually stir in the milk to make a very thick sauce.
Cook this for 5 minutes, stirring all the time, and then take the pan off the heat and add the beaten egg, tomato purée , Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice.
Now add the hard-boiled eggs, stir to mix them in and season with salt.
Next transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover and chill until the mixture become firm.
Then before cooking form the mixture into 4 little round cakes, about 2cm thick, and dip them first in the seasoned flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in the breadcrumbs.
Now shallow-fry them in 5mm of hot oil till golden brown and drain on kitchen paper before serving.
