Eggs On Potatoes

So, I serve this dish for breakfast or for dinner when I am out of inspiration or just in a food rut. Everyone in my home likes potatoes and eggs, so why not? Infact my husband will turn down a perfectly good chicken curry if there is a potato dish in the house. I cannot understand that logic!
My mom had a bunch of Parsi friends and a lot of her food was Parsi as well. I have never fed this to a Parsi though, and wonder what they would think of this rendition. I don't even know if it is accurate. Anyway, I do think of my mum when I make this because she always had a hot meal for us and they were always on time :)
I hope you try this dish and enjoy it :)
