This is a classic Parsi dish and a great one for those who (like me) are into really savory breakfasts. It’s also made as street food, which is how I first had it—prepared at a cart and eaten from a paper plate standing up (and, in a hurry, in the back of a car). A fitting dish to eat while rushing out the door in the morning.
