a delicious breakfast dish

Eggs are one of the most common breakfast foods and is a rich source of protein. You can get as experimental with eggs as you wish.  From the humble boiled eggs to the exotic egg benedict, the list is endless.  Batata Anda, a simple breakfast dish  is a variation of the popular Parsi dish ‘Wafer par eeda’ which is eggs on potato chips. For Batata Anda, I have cut potato into thin slices, cooked it until crisp and then added beaten eggs over it. This is a delicious breakfast dish which can be served as a stand alone dish or with bread. Here’s the recipe:


2 eggs
1 medium sized potato
2 tsp chopped onions
2 tsp chopped tomatoes
2 tsp chopped capsicum
½ tsp black pepper powder
½ tsp red chilly flakes
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt as per taste
1 tbsp oil
