“This was Mum’s breakfast served on a lazy Sunday. She worked a 5 day week – and so breakfast was never a meal, we had the luxury indulgence as a family, except on weekends!”

Never heard of Maprom? Maprom* resembles the Middle Eastern dish “Sabsuka”. Maprom has always been a breakfast dish that Mum would serve on Sundays. It’s fusion food at it’s finest!
It is a simple dish to be made and best eaten piping hot.

- 1 katty (approx. 0.5 kg) sliced big onions
- 1 katty (approx. 0.5 kg) tomatoes
