Shakshuka

2017-03-13

People often will give you a strange look when you say the word Shakshuka like you have sneezed or something. Shakshuka are you not familiar with that!! then I am excited to bring you the idea. It is a very easy dish that birth in the Middle East. It is prepared by frying onion, tomatoes, and garlic. You can add garlic sauce for a touch even tastier.

Ingredients

  • Eggs: 5-6
  • Minced Garlic: 1 clove
  • Green or red chopped bell pepper: 1
  • Medium peeled and diced brown or white onion: 1
  • Ripe diced tomatoes: 4 cups
  • Tomato paste: 2 tablespoons
  • Chili powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Cumin: 1 teaspoon
  • Paprika: 1 teaspoon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil: 1 tablespoon
  • Fresh chopped parsley: 1/2 tablespoon (optional)

Method

Step 1

On medium temperature heat a saute pan. In the pan slowly warm olive oil. Add chopped onion, and sauté for a few minutes. When they are soften add garlic and continue to saute till mixture is fragrant.

Step 2

Now add bell pepper, for 5 to 7 minutes saute over medium until softened.

Step 3

And tomatoes plus pour tomato paste on saute pan, stir untill blended. Add sugar and spices and stir well. Also put on the mixture to simmer for 5-7 minutes over medium heat till it starts to reduce. Taste The mixture and spice it following to your favor. Now add salt and pepper to taste, more cayenne pepper for a spicier, or more sugar for a sweeter sauce shakshuka.

Step 4

Time to crack all the eggs directly over the tomato mixture, making sure to space them on a level over the sauce. The eggs will cook "over easy" style on top of the tomato sauce. And cover the pan.

Step 5

For 10 to 15 minutes allow mixture to simmer . Focus on the skillet to make sure that the sauce doesn't reduce too much, which can lead to burning.

Step 6

I prefer my shakshuka eggs more runny. If this is your preference, let the sauce minimize for a few minutes before cracking the eggs on top-- then, cover the pan and cook the eggs to taste.
