Makes 4 Servings

- eggs, 4 large
- medium onions, 4
- fresh lime juice, 1-2 spoons
- saffron, 1/2 teaspoon
- baking soda, one teaspoon
- cooking oil

Peel and slice onions, then fry in oil until slightly golden.
Wash and cut chicken into pieces, then fry in onions on both
sides until color changes. Add salt, black pepper, and one
glass of hot water, and cook over medium heat for about 20
minutes until little water is left. Allow chicken to cool
down, then remove the bones and cut the meat into small pieces.
Dissolve saffron in 2-3 spoons of hot water, and baking soda in
2-3 spoons of cold water. Add salt and black pepper to eggs and
mix well. Add saffron, baking soda, lime juice, chicken (with
juice), and onions to eggs and mix well. Heat oil in a pan until
hot. Pour the mix in, flaten the surface with the back of a spoon,
and fry over medium heat for 5-10 minutes. Cut radially into 8
pieces, turn over and fry for another 5-10 minutes.
