6 Large, White Potato, Scrubbed and Cut in Bite Size Piece

3 or 4 Glugs, Olive Oil, Best Quality

3 or 4 Tablespoon, Butter

4 or 5 Tablespoon, Cumin Seed, Whole

1/2 Cup, 1/2 & 1/2 Cream

3 or 5 Tablespoon, Yogurt, unflavored/ plain

1 Large Bunch, Green Top Onion, Course Chop (about 1 Cup)

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Dash, Nutmeg

4 Large, Egg, at Room temp

Water

 

In large, 4 inch deep kettle or skillet (with a lid, for later), on Medium Temp melt Butter and Olive Oil together

When spatter hot, add the Cumin Seed and toast swishing around until Cumin starts to pop

Add the Potato, mix together to coat all Potato with Butter/ Olive Oil/ Cumin

Add enough water to bring water level to two fingers below top of Potato level, mix together

Now increase temp to high. At the boil, continue cooking until almost all the liquid evaporates, this should take 5 or 8 minutes

Lower Temp to medium/ medium low, add 1/2 & 1/2 Cream and Yogurt, Season with Salt & Pepper & Nutmeg, Mix to incorporate all ingredients

Slowly cook, stirring frequently so as to not scorch. Cook until almost all liquid is absorbed. This may take 8 to 10 minutes, cook this slowly making sure it does not scorch

At this point, stir in the Green Top Onion, reserve a few pieces as garnish

Use a Potato Masher, mash up the Potato mixture, leave plenty of ‘whole’ pieces, as well as some mashed

With a Spoon, make 4 indents in the top of Potato mixture, Crack a Room Temp Egg into Each Indent, Cover your Kettle and allow Eggs to Poach. This may take from 3 to 10 minutes, depends on how hot your Potato Mixture is, watch close so as to not over cook Eggs

Cut into four pieces, with an Egg on each and Serve, Garnish with Green Top Onion & a Grind of Fresh Cracked Black Pepper! YUM!
