Put 4 eggs in cold water, bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl of ice-cold water.
In a large bowl, mix together lamb, garlic, ginger, chilli, curry paste, peas and coriander; season. Divide into 4 equal portions.
Carefully peel boiled eggs and press an egg into the centre of each portion of lamb mixture, then gently wrap mixture around each egg until encased in mixture of 1cm (½in) even thickness. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°fan/Gas 6.
In a bowl, beat remaining egg. Put beaten egg, flour and breadcrumbs into separate small bowls. Dip each lamb portion into flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs to coat. Transfer to a lightly greased roasting tin and bake for 25 minutes. Serve with sweet chilli mayonnaise and a green salad, if you like.
