Breakfast, brunch, Main Dish
capsicum (bell pepper)
or Kashmiri chilli powder
Cilantro (Coriander leaves)
Prep the ingredients. Thinly slice the capsicum. Finely chop the onions, tomatoes and garlic.
Heat some olive oil in a pan and fry the chopped garlic for a minute. Reduce to medium, add the onions, and continue cooking until the onions turn translucent.
Now add the sliced capsicum, stir well, and continue cooking for a couple more minutes.
Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook till they turn tender and mushy. Add 1/4 cup water, salt, and mix well.
Add cumin seeds.
Now add salt, paprika, 1/4 cup of water, mix well, and let it simmer.
Make three wells in the sauce.
Break an egg, and carefully place it into a well. Repeat for the next two eggs.
Let the eggs poach in the sauce on a low flame. Wait for the whites to be set, and switch off the flame.
Garnish with some coriander leaves and serve with some bread.
I have used paprika in this recipe. Kashmiri chilli powder is a great substitute
If you want your shakshuka a bit more hot and spicy, add cayenne pepper or any other hot chillies
If the tomatoes are sour, add a little sugar and mix well before dropping the eggs
