egg and potato mash


  • 1 large potato

  • ½ teaspoon cumin ground
  • ½ teaspoon Bharat -Middle Eastern Seven Spice Blend (See notes from Rouba)
  • parsley finely chopped
  • spring onion finely chopped
  • salt to season
  • olive oil

Notes from Rouba

  • Bharat is also a 7-spice blend. You can find it at Middle Eastern grocery stores and various supermarkets. Otherwise, you can substitute with 5-spice or allspice.
  • Which variety of potatoes to use: for mash, Dutch cream is a great option and Sebago is an excellent all-rounder. Know your potato guide.


Step 1.

Place the potatoes in salted boiling water. Bring to a boil until cooked through then drain.

While the potatoes are cooking, place the eggs in a small saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil, cooking until cooked through. Remove then peel.

Step 2.

There are no more steps required here. All you need to do for this recipe is combine it in the order suggested.

On a board or a plate, coarsely mash the potatoes and egg and combine well.
Season with salt, a sprinkle of cumin, and a sprinkle of Bharat/7-spice blend or Allspice.
Drizzle with good-quality olive oil.
Garnish generously with parsley and spring onion.
If you love olive oil, go ahead and drizzle some more.
