Cooking is Priyanka’s one of the newest hobbies. But busy corporate life hardly leaves her any time. So Sundays are when she experiments with her skills, takes over her mother’s kitchen and most often lands up preparing something interesting yet tasty. So one such Sunday, while her parents were discussing how the omelette and toast or any English breakfast for that matter can never match up to the Indian curry flavors that was once prepared regularly, for Sunday Breakfast in their household. Priyanka quietly listened to the conversation and decided to revamp the same Indian curry flavors but with a twist, which is also the recipe for the day, Potato and Tomato Egg Poach. We at thecomfortfoods.com hope you all are as much delighted and happy to taste the dish as were Priyanka’s parents and make it a permanent part of your breakfast menu.
Take the boiled potatoes in a bowl and smash it well before cooking.
Take a frying pan, add the vegetable oil and let it heat on medium flame. Add the chopped onions and fry it for 2 minutes, next add the ginger and garlic paste, mix it well with the onions and fry it for 2 more minutes. Now add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and red chili powder and mix all the ingredients well and let it cook for 3 more minutes until it leaves oil.
Now add the boiled smash potatoes, sprinkle a little salt and mix all the ingredients well. Use a spoon to even out the layer on the frying pan. Leave it in this position for about 2 minutes. Now use the same spoon to make 3 holes on the layer, in three different places. Take the eggs carefully and break it over the holes without disturbing the yolk. Now sprinkle a little salt and black pepper over it, cover the frying pan with a lit and let it cook for 5 to 7 minutes until the egg poaches.
Remove the lid, turn off the heat, sprinkle the chopped mint leaves, without disturbing the egg yolks, and cut a piece each of the Potato and Tomato Egg Poach for your family. It is yummy, filling, tasty, and extremely healthy and comes with popular Indian curry flavours.
P.S. though it is a meal in itself, but goes best with breads.
