A very tasty and quick recipe which is my savior in number of instances. Not a full fledged recipe at all, just whatever masala available to you, stir fry boiled and sliced egg and potato with those masalas and thats it. Try the tasty egg potato fry with your rice and daal or have it as part of a filling to indian style roti roll or even use it as a sandwich filling. It will never disappoint you.
Disclaimer: I forgot from where I have collected the recipe, but must be from some food group. I cannot really thank enough to all these groups to enable me with new recipes.
Ingredients for egg potato fry:
- Eggs – 3
- Potatoes – 3-4
- Onion – 1, finely chopped
- Green chilli – as per taste, sliced
- Tomato – 1, small, chopped
- Turmeric, salt, cumin powder
- White oil for frying
Boil the potatoes and eggs in a pressure cooker. I always add a pinch of salt to the water while boiling eggs and potatoes. Also, I heard that boiling eggs and potatoes together reduces the cooking time.
Let it cool a bit, then peel and slice them. Again, peeling boiled potato is easier, when it is still warm.
In a pan, heat the oil. Fry sliced onion and green chilli till translucent.
Add chopped tomato and let it mash.
Add salt, turmeric and cumin powder and give it a good stir. Let the raw smell gone.
Add the sliced potatoes and eggs and fold with the masalas.
Fry for 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally so that the masalas are coated well.
Sprinkle some chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
