Papeta par Eeda | Parsi style Potatoes and eggs | How to make Parsi style Eggs and potatoes is a traditional, easy to make recipe from Parsi cuisine, of making  eggs on the bed of sliced potatoes with onion, tomatoes and some basic spices.

Here papeta means potatoes and eeda means eggs. It literally translates to eggs on top of potatoes.

This recipe comes very handy when you feel lazy on some days and want to cook simple lunch or dinner.

This recipe is quite different from authentic papeta par eeda, which my Mom in law tweaked to suit to our family’s taste. Moreover She named it egg omelette sabzi.

This recipe is one of the simplest dishes with eggs but yet so very delicious which I learnt from my Mom-in-law.

However the preparation style of making this dish is different from what Parsis make but this recipe is a family favourite.

While I have several favorite picks like Sindhi style pakode ki sabzi from her collection, this egg dish is regular in my kitchen as well, since  they’re easy to make.

Few things to keep in mind while you make this recipe:

Take your time to fry the potatoes and onions on the low flame as they are the base of this dish.

You may reduce the quantity of chillies if you prefer but I think it goes really well with sweetness of onions and potatoes.

You can eat this with chapti/roti, pav or bread rolls or even with flaky parathas.

In a non stick frying pan, add the oil. Once it’s hot lay thinly sliced potato pieces all over the pan covering the entire base.

 

 

 

Next add chopped onions and saute it. Add salt to this, cover and cook on slow flame.

After a while add the  masalas and saute well. And turn the potatoes upside down.

Once the tomatoes and masala is cooked add the beaten eggs. Sprinkle chopped coriander and cook further. Again cover it and let it cook on slow flame.

Now to turn this upside down again to cook on both sides. I many times cut it into half and then turn it. Cover with lid to cook further.

 

Once the eggs have cooked well and they have fluffed up, remove this from fire.

Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot with chapati/Roti, or paratha.
