Tangy Spiced Tomato Egg Tart...Delicious Twist on a Parsi Special - Peri's Spice Ladle

Tangy Spiced Tomato Egg Tart...Delicious Twist on a Parsi Special - Peri's Spice Ladle

It’s legendary really; the Parsi love for eggs and its appearance in our daily meals. And here’s how we do it... Take any vegetable like okra, potatoes, gourd , beans or just about anything that catches your fancy (even minced meat works well) and prepare it the Parsi way with aromatics, spices and flavorings. This is called 'the base'. Then top the prepared base with a generous layer of well-beaten seasoned eggs or a whole egg sunny-side up, and cook them covered till they set; sometimes I like to pop the pan into the oven for a golden crust over the eggs.
