Egg and spiced potato brunch

Whether it's a lazy, boozy or bottomless brunch, or a combination of the three, there's no escaping the latest most important meal of the day (well, on the weekend at least). So on this blog there will be four weekly brunch recipes to try out, from a spiced porridge to a chilli cheese on toast. A lazy brunch should be just that and this goes for the person making it - all of these recipes are incredibly quick and easy to make and some are pretty easy to share so you don't need another weekend to recover from cooking. 

If you want something sweet to go with these dishes, check out the chocolate chai brownies and rose and cardamom biscuit recipes.

The brunch series starts with eggs with spiced potato. The only thing this lacked was some nice fresh herbs such as parsley and coriander. The ones in my local tesco looked so sad I couldn't face buying them so mine were sans herb this time, but do add your favourites to this dish even just to add some colour. You also don't have to use baby potatoes, any potato would be fine. 

serves 1 as a main or two if you're sharing a different dishes:
2 eggs
4 baby potatoes, chopped into small cubes
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ground turmeric
half tsp garam masala
half tsp crushed dried red chilli (or more if you like it spicy)
some crushed black pepper

1. Par boil the potatoes for about 4-5 mins until cooked but firm (or microwave them for about 4 mins but make sure you don't over cook them as they will dry out)
2. In a small frying pan lightly dry fry the cumin seeds until lightly toasted
3. add the butter into the same pan and once melted, add the chopped garlic 
4. Add the turmeric, masala and chilli and lightly fry for about a minute or two before adding the almost cooked potato and fry on a medium heat until cooked
5. Whilst the potatoes are cooking, make fry or poach your eggs as you usually do
6. Serve and sprinkle the crush black pepper over the eggs
