  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 5 minutes, until slightly softened. Drain, then pat dry.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Add the spices and fry for 1 minute, until fragrant. Tip in the potato and cook for 10-15 minutes, until crisp on the outside and softened and fluffy on the inside.
  3. Bring another pan of water to the boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer and add the vinegar. Crack the eggs into the water and poach for 3 minutes, or until the whites are cooked, but the yolks are still runny*.
  4. Meanwhile, add the pulled pork or ham to the potatoes and cook until warmed through. Divide the hash between two plates and top each with a poached egg. Scatter over the spring onions and coriander. Serve with a little chilli sauce on the side, if you like.

*If serving vulnerable groups – babies, toddlers, pregnant women, the elderly or people who are unwell – cook the eggs until the whites and yolks are solid.
