Simple shakshuka

Hereby, I present a short and easy shakshuka recipe I make for Sundays brunch.

  • 5 tomatoes

  • 1,5 paprikas

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1/2 onion

  • 1 spoon ghee butter

  • 3 eggs

  • Cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper

  • Herbs to decorate (optional). Here I used celery leafs, parsley and coriender

  • I start by blanching the tomatoes. I like to make little cuts in the skin beforehand. I just pour some boiling water over tomatoes, let them stay for approximately 5 mins, then pour the hot water out, and add some cold water over them.

  • In the meantime - cut onion to small squares.

  • Add ghee to the pan.

  • Fry onion, cumin, smoked paprika, salt.

  • Peel the skin of tomatoes, cut them to small pieces, add to fried onion.

  • In the meantime, I cut the paprika into small dices, cut garlic, add and combine all in the frying pan, add a tbsp of tomato paste.

  • When the mass is ready and uniform, reduce the head, make little holes for eggs, I crack eggs directly to the pan and put the lid on.

  • When eggs are in wanted consistency (I like the white to be boiled and yolks runny), add the herbs, if wanted, more salt and pepper to the top.

Ready to serve! Enjoy!
