Smashed Potatoes with Soft-Cooked Eggs and Mint (Yeralma Yumurta)

Yeralma yumurta, which translates simply as potato egg from the Azerbaijani language, is a popular street food in Tabriz, in northwestern Iran. Smashed potatoes and eggs are spread onto flatbread, which is rolled up for easy eating. For our version—inspired by a recipe from Naz Deravian's new cookbook, “Bottom of the Pot”—we soft-cook the eggs so the yolks stay moist and rich, and perk up the flavors and colors with lemon-pickled red onions, ground sumac and fresh mint. Thin, rectangular sheets of lavash are the best choice for bread, but if it’s not available, use pita bread or naan instead; these types of bread are thicker than lavash and were especially good when warmed before topping.
