Harissa Potatoes with Eggs

This is one of my favourite dishes and is always a treat to see my friends try it for the first time. It’s a meal that stands up on its own or is the perfect addition to any Middle Eastern feast (or any big spread really). Harissa is the cornerstone of Persian and North African cuisine. It is an incredibly rich blend of chillies, oils and spices that originates from Tunisia. Its name comes from the Arabic word, harasa, which means ‘to pound’ or ‘to break into pieces’, and is believed to refer to shoppers watching their spice mixes be ‘pounded out’ while they waited at the spice souks.
