Shakshuka, yet another egg fan

Shakshuka- quick and refreshing – a very popular middle Eastern dish made of poached eggs in spicy tomato and sweet pepper sauce. Tried it once at a local restaurant and was hooked since. You can add olives, sun dried tomatoes, beans, feta cheese etc to it too. The key is to take it out of the oven in time so that the yolks are still runny.

Method –
Heat oil
Add chopped onions
Add chopped sweet peppers, stir till soft.
Add tinned tomatoes, tinned beans
Add extra tomato paste (optional)
Season with chilli flakes, garam masala
Add salt and bit of sugar to counteract the tangy taste of tomato.
Once the sauce is done, break the eggs into it, keeping the yolks intact.
Place in the oven and cook for not more than 8 mins.
Garnish with coriander.
