24-04-2020 di redazione

The Zege (or Zegee) is a sort of omelette with potatoes and is one of the delicacies prepared by the kiosks and fry shops outside the shops and on Kenya's streetsides, particularly on the Kenyan coast. It can also be integrated with other ingredients and become a real dinner.
Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
Two eggs, lightly beaten
Seed oil
One or two potatoes peeled and cut into strips
chopped onions
salt and pepper to taste
chopped herbs

Additional ingredients:
pieces of leftover chicken
grated cheddar cheese
Green diced pepper

Preparation:

Prepare the potato strips in the manner of French fries and dry them well.
Beat the eggs slightly with a little salt and pepper.
Heat a saucepan, add the oil. Throw the french fries and any other ingredients you are going to use in the pan.
Don't overfill the pan. Pour the beaten eggs to cover everything.
Cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes.
Once the bottom of the zege is well coloured, gently insert a spatula underneath and turn it upside down.
Cook again until both sides are evenly coloured.
Serve hot with a little tomato sauce and chopped coriander to taste.
Usually the Zege is garnished with mixed salad and toasted bread.
