~Chips Mayai (Chips & Eggs)~

Posted by M.S. at 5:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
Every country has its street food. In Tanzania (Africa), you can sit by the side of the road and eat a hot dish with plenty of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables.

Tanzanian's favorite meal-on-the-go! Known as chipsi mayai (French fries Omelette - chips with eggs) or Zege, is basically an egg and potato chips omelet. Very simple to make and the love of all Kidz to Adults and easy to make.

The chips are deep fried, just as you make French fries. After they are cooked, drain and remove. 
Take 2 eggs and add salt, pepper, dices chilies (Optional), diced onions and beat till fluffy.


Now take a small frying pan (to get small round Chips Mayai) drizzle little oil on pan and heat on stove. Lay all the chips on the frying pan.  Pour the beaten eggs mixture on the chips and let it cook till light brown, when done at the bottom flip on other side to cook and you are done!!

Variations: 
Add after flipping some cheese and diced tomatoes and let it cook covered on slow flame to melt the cheese little. 
Add sliced mushrooms to the eggs mixture as well (optional).
Add BBQ meat pieces on top as well.
Serve with sauces and Kachumbar (salads).

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.
