Heat the vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and saute until slightly golden. Increase the heat to medium-high; add the chicken and saute until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Then add the turmeric powder and stir gently. Pour 1/2 cup water. Add salt and pepper; cover the pan and cook over medium-low heat until chicken is tender. Then drain and shred the chicken. Set aside.
Meanwhile, wash the potatoes and place them into a pot. Pour water until potatoes are covered. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook covered until done - a fork can easily be poked through them. Drain water from potatoes. Peel and finely chop them. Add the olive oil, stir well and set aside.
Cook the eggs. Peel and finely chop them.
