Pak Esa's Breakfast

My Uncle Pak Esa made this dish for breakfast whenever we visited him in Johor & it never occurred to me to ask him the name of this breakfast. Thus resulting in me calling this breakfast after his name. It is an all-time favourite breakfast with my family!


  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 2 large potatoes, cubed
  • 2 large onions, cubed
  • 2 large tomatoes, cubed
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tablespoon tomato sauce

  1. Heat oil in the pan.
  2. Put in the potatoes. Continue stirring till cooked through.
  3. Add the onions to the potatoes. Toss it around till it becomes transparent.
  4. Put in the tomatoes. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  5. Flavour with salt & pepper.
  6. Break the eggs into the mixture. Leave to cook for about 2 minutes. Don’t stir. Just flip it over once.
  7. Pour in the tomato sauce. Stir gently & take it off the heat.
  8. Totally amazing when eaten immediately with bread.
