INGREDIENTS

The below quantity makes 5 to 6 big slices.

  • Eggs- 5 big
  • Potatoes- 2 medium sized ( sliced thin)
  • Mushroom- 5 ( sliced finely lengthwise)

  • Tomato- 1 big ( sliced as circles)
  • Spinach- handful ( chopped finely)
  • Red chilli flakes- 1 tsp
  • Chat masala- 1 tsp
  • Salt- as needed.

PROCEDURE

Clean the potatoes, mushrooms and spinach well. Normally I don’t peel the skin from the potatoes. If you prefer to peel the skin, peel the skin first. Cut them into thin circles and slit in the center. Slice the mushrooms thin lengthwise and chop the spinach.

Slice the potatoes and drop them in water for 30 minutes. This helps to remove the excess starch from potatoes and helps them from discolouring.
After 30 minutes, drain the water out. Wash it with water.
Wipe them with the cloth to dry them out.
Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and saute the dried potatoes in medium flame for almost 5 minutes. Stir them now and then to prevent them getting dark.
Add little salt to it.
Add sliced onions now and stir it for 1 more minute.
Add the sliced mushrooms now.
Saute everything together for 2 more minutes. Potatoes should be cooked by now.
Take 5 eggs in a bowl and whisk them together.
Add all the spices, salt and whisk them together.
Add the chopped spinach.
Finally add the cooked potato, onion and mushroom.
Mix everything together.
Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan. Pour the mixed mixture into the pan. Keep the flame in low.

Keep the flame in low.
Keep the sliced tomato circles on top.
Close it with a lid on top and cook it for 45 to 50 minutes in low flame.
After 45 to 50 minutes, you could see it’s cooked on top and the colour has changed. It is ready and cooked.
Keep a plate on top.
Reverse the plate.
You could see layers of potatoes in between the egg.
