These days, when Mr. Cardoz cooks at home for his family, he often makes a casserole that borrows from the Parsis in India, a group of Zoroastrian Persians who settled in the country sometime between the eighth and 10th centuries. He starts with a tomato sauce spiked with ginger, fresh mint and green chiles, which he pours over potatoes before baking. Near the end, he cracks eggs on top and bakes until they are just set. The dish is perfumed, pungent and creamy from the runny yolk that coats each tomato-laden bite.
This tangy and spiced tomato egg tart is a delicious twist on a Parsi favorite…and perfect for all the tomatoes coming out at farmers markets and in our gardens soon!
