#CookandChomp Eggs Shakshuka-ish

Forever on the look-out for trying something new and exciting for breakfast, I thought of cooking up my version of Eggs Shakshuka. The traditional Mediterranean eggs are very flavoursome and healthy to boot. The traditional version has a lot of chunky tomatoes, fresh cheese and eggs poached into the mix. I made a more inspired and much lighter version of eggs shakshuka using only homely ingredients.

Ingredients – (Serves 1 for a light breakfast)

  • Tomatoes –  2 large
  • Onion – 1 medium
  • Red chilly powder – 1tsp
  • Garlic cloves – 2 medium sized
  • Egg – 1
  • Olive oil – 1tsp
  • Salt and pepper – to taste

Method –

  • Wash the tomatoes and chop into 8s. Put all the pieces into a mixer jar and grind till a smooth paste.
  • Peel the onion and chop it roughly.
  • Chop the garlic cloves finely.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan and add the chopped garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the onions and cook until transparent.
  • Add the tomato paste and red chilly powder, salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Cook until a thick paste is formed.
  • Make a cavity in the paste, something like a doughnut and break the egg into it.
  • Cover and cook for 2 minutes until the egg has fluffed up.
  • Scoop it all out and serve with toast.

Makes for a super healthy breakfast and the egg porn is unparalleled.
