The best part of being a foodie is that you try different kind of cuisines and dishes from different continents which are popular among various ethnic groups. Middle East is one such region in the world where dishes combine the flavors from countries like Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria and Egypt. This region also gave the world the best ingredient and that is Olive. Believe me dishes made in the olive oil are considered the most nutritious and delicious as well.
I know one such recipe which I make quite usually when I am bored of eating the normal Indian food. Egg Shakshuka! This dish stole my heart when I tried it in one of the restaurants which serves food from Middle East region. I did little research on the internet and found the perfect recipe to make Egg Shakshuka. Sharing the same below.
- Eggs 2
- Onion 1
- Garlic 2 cloves
- Tomatoes 2
- Tomato puree ½ cup
- Red bell peppers ½ half cup
- Olive oil 2 table spoons
- Red chili powder ½ tea spoon
- Sugar 1 tea spoon
- Salt to taste
- Chopped spring onion leaves for garnishing
First in a thick bottom skillet heat olive oil.
Now add chopped onion and garlic and let them turn translucent.
Now add chopped tomatoes and add salt, sugar and red chili powder. Stir everything and cover the skillet with a lid.
After five minutes, remove the lid and add tomato puree. Stir well and after 2 minutes add finely chopped bell peppers. Cover the skillet with lid again for 2 mins.
Now make two wells in the gravy and crack two eggs in each. Without disturbing the curry let the eggs cook. You can cover the skillet with lid to let the cook bit faster.
After 5 minutes remove the lid and Shakshuka is ready to be served.
Before serving the dish garnish it with spring onion leaves.
