4 medium potatoes
2 eggs
Oil (for frying)
salt to taste


Peel potatoes and cut into the size of steak french fries
Heat enough oil to cover the potatoes until drops of water cause “boiling”
Put potatoes in the hot oil and cook until soft, turning occasionally so they cook evenly.
Remove potatoes from oil and place in frying pan with 1 TBSP of oil.
Beat two eggs and pour over the potatoes in the frying pan
Cook them together for a few seconds and then flip using a plate (invert the frying pan over the plate and then slide the chips mayai off the plate and back into the pan with the uncooked side down on the heat).
Press the chipsi mayai into the pan with a spatula as it cooks. After a minute or so, flip again using the plate and press again with the spatula
Continue cooking until the egg is completely cooked.

Most Tanzanians eat it with a tomato or chili sauce over top, you can use ketchup.
