Some times store cupboard brunches can be hit or miss, Especially when you are short on crutial incrediaents.  Thankfully this one is a winner.  This a chickpea and sweet potato hash Clarence Court Braddock White duck egg. Pretty snazzy cupboard brunch if i can say myself. Though what made it next level was the Bloody Ben's Bloody Mary Mix I used to season it with.  Instead of adding any seasoning or spices I added a couple of glugs of Bloody Bens to the hash and a splodge on the egg for good measure.

The Ingredents

1 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1-inch cubes6 tbs olive oil1 yellow onion chopped2 cloves garlic, chopped2 links of cooking chorizo1 tin of chickpeas drained2 handfuls of fresh spinach2 tbs of Bloody Ben's Bloody Mary Seasoning2 Clarence Court Braddock White Duck Eggs

The Method

Add the sweet potatoes to a pan of salted boiling water and simmer until tender. Drain and dry completely with paper towels. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo, onions and garlic. Gently saute until the chorizo has rendered the fat and the onions are tender and lightly golden.  This should take  5 to 6 minutes. Then remove to a bowl. Add a bit more oil to the frying pan, and then add the drained and dried sweet potatoes. Cook in a single layer, stirring occasionally, on medium heat until they are tender and beginning to loose some shape which should take about 5 minutes.  Add the chickpeas and the Bloody Bens seasoning.  Increase the heat to high and cook, without stirring, until the potatoes are golden and crisp, about 2 more minutes. At this point you are gonna want to fry your eggs in a separate frying pan. Once your potatoes have gone crispy remove from the heat and add the spinach and chorizo mix back to the hash.  The residual heat will wilt the spinach to perfection. Separate the hash onto serving plate. Top with fried egg and sprinkle a splodge of Bloody Bens on the egg for more kick.

If you ask for recommendations for an Indian Brunch in London, I guarantee you that 99% of the responses will say Dishoom. I would wholeheartedly agree with that response, in fact, that would be the recommendation that would come to mind. Yes, the breakfast/brunch offering there is pretty amazing… (drooling now thinking about that bacon naan), but I don’t think there have ever been any contenders to take that crown…. Well, that is until Dum Biryani launched their Hyderabad Brunch offering two weeks ago.
