Instructions Checklist
  • Make the dipping sauce: Combine yogurt, chutney, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, curry powder, and cayenne in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Make the Scotch eggs: Divide pork sausage into 6 even portions. Flatten each portion into a thin patty. Place 1 hard-boiled egg in the middle of each patty and wrap sausage around eggs, sealing all sides. Set aside.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place flour in a small bowl, beaten eggs in another small bowl, and panko on a plate. Dip each sausage-wrapped egg into flour, then dip into beaten egg, letting the excess drip off. Roll in panko and place on a plate.

  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Arrange eggs in the basket in a single layer without overcrowding; cook in batches if necessary. Cook in the preheated air fryer for 12 minutes, turning eggs over halfway through. Repeat with remaining eggs. Serve with dipping sauce.


You can find mango chutney in the Indian section of your grocery store.

If you prefer a smoother dipping sauce, use a mini food processor and blend. If you like a lot of sauce, make a double batch.
