Begedil is a Malay name for potato cutlet or potato patties. It is made from a mixture of mashed potatoes, eggs, finely chopped onions and carrots, and green peas, and salt and pepper to taste. Other spices can also be added as desired, like turmeric powder.

Begedil is one of the popular snacks sold by street hawkers or food courts in Malaysia and Singapore. It can also be served as a side dish or can be eaten as is as a meal.

Personal Note: Has some similarity with Germany's Reibekuchen (potato fritters. The only difference is that Begedil is made with cooked potatoes and with additional ingredients, while Reibekuchen uses grated raw potatoes as a main ingredient.
