This recipe is in homage to my wonderful late grand-mother Olga. She used to make this for me for supper and nothing could convince me that fried eggs can be eaten in a more delicious way. Easy, delicious and comforting.
- 63 corn oil (or sunflower oil)

My grandmother used to take a knife and fork and cut the fried eggs into chunks where the runny egg yolks would amalgamate everything together and the sumac would lend a beautiful deep purple color to the orange of the yolk. But what brought this recipe home was the crunchy crispiness of the egg whites that has been fried in oil. Frying the eggs in butter does not give the egg whites this aimed for golden crispiness. Finally, tear the pita bread into triangular pieces and scoop up this lovely gooey mixture and eat! One last note, when frying the eggs, the bigger the pan the better, giving the egg whites the space to spread out into a thin layer.
