eggs and boiled potatoes



Another simple dish from the house of Bachelor cooking.
I mean it can't get simpler than this.

Something that I cook often when I am late from office, or on a lazy sunday morning.

When I cook Daal and Rice, and I need a side dish like a Bhaji to go with,
yet sometimes you are so lazy, or tired after a hard days work.
And so I need to cook up something real quick.

Other than a rich daal fry with onion all masalas, and even some makhaan, I find this side dish very convenient.
Takes around 10 minutes to cook, well take out the time I took to boil the potatoes, for I boil the potatoes along with the Daal.


Two large potatoes washed properly and cut in half*.
One Large Onion, chopped.
Green Chilli, chopped.
2-3 Eggs.
1 medium size Tomato, chopped.
Pinch of haldi(turmeric), mirchi(Chilli) powder, Dhania powder and Jeera powder.
Pinch should be like 1/4 of a Tsp.
Coriander to garnish.

When you boil the daal for cooking, add the potatoes.
Peel if you boiled with the skin.
Crush roughly with the hand or cut into 3/4 inch cubes.

Add onions and green chilli in 1 TBS of oil and fry till onion is very limp.
Add all the pinches of masala, and salt to taste.
Add tomatoes and for 2 minutes.
Add the Potato, and fry/ mix well (sauté) continuously.
Fry for about 3 minutes and break three eggs over it.
Keep sautéing, till eggs and potatoes mix and eggs have solidified.

Garnish with coriander.

*(You may peel it now or peel it after it gets boiled); I boil with the skin and peeled later because someone once told me it retains the nutrients.
