HELLO MY FELLOW POTATO LOVERS.
I had this in my archive for some time now. But voila. Here’s something I came up with.
There wasn’t exactly anything at home and myself being too lazy didn’t want to take use whatever energy I had left to go grocery shopping and damn. Your girl was hungry. So I looked around the house and I saw 3 larger potatoes and 4 eggs.
So I put my mind to work. I wanted to start with the egg sauce. So I chopped 2 large onions. Now some people might not like this but for me I enjoy them in my meals. It’s always good when you fry and caramelize them. And I used red onions not white because red has a good color and it’s more flavorful than white.
Then after that I got chopping at my potatoes. I decided to cut them like fries. Now if you fry potatoes a lot. You will notice that frying them just like that and frying them after boiling or soaking in ice cold water.
So while your onions is frying, soak the potatoes in salted ice cold water. To the onions add chicken stock cubes, turmeric, curry powder, garlic powder, coriander and fennel seeds, chilli powder or you can even chop your own chillies and add to it.
Then you whisk 4 eggs in a bowl and add it to the mixture.as soon as you add it, keep stirring to avoid it burning too muhh. Then for about 3 minutes leave on low heat, then add half a cup of water. Then stir again and leave to boil on high heat.
Drain your potatoes off the water and dry them off. And then you fry them. Now I didn’t deep fry, because I think the potatoes soak up a lot of oil and at the end it because too greasy. And since it’s home made, one has control over just how muhh oil is used.
Because it had been soaked in ice cold water, they don’t come out soggy and have a nice brownish yellow color.
In the above picture, you can see a bit of red and brownish black, that’s the caramelized red onions. It gives the egg sauce a sweet flavor in combination to all the spices that have been used and doesnt make it too boring.
I mentioned fennel seeds earlier.
They’re actually a lot smaller than they seem and are not quite noticeable when you add them to food. The sole purpose of using them is to eliminate smell. In order to eliminate the eggy smell, especially for those that can’t tolerate it, fennel seeds are used. They can also use it when boiling chicken and making chicken soup to eliminate the “damp chicken smell”. It also has loads of health benefits. One of which I know is it helps greatly with weight loss. Just toss a few in green tea and you’re good to go.
Bin Appétit folks. Stay hydrated.
