Shakshuka_Featured7

And then it happened! I have been meaning to try this recipe for such a long time, that it is crazy. Sometimes I dont have Red Bell Peppers, sometimes I am running out of fresh Parsley and then sometimes I am just pure lazy. This glorious day in my lifetime I had everything I needed to make Shakshuka or Shakshouka . First let me talk a little about what Shakshuka is. No No its not a Gujarati dish. Do not confuse Shaak for Veggies . Shakshuka is a Jewish Libyan recipe of Eggs with Red Bell Pepper, Tomatoes and Cumin. My sources (read Wikipedia) say, it was  believed to have originated in Libya, North Africa by the Jews. Wikipedia says, Shakshouka is a staple of Tunisian, Libyan, Algerian, Moroccan, and Egyptian cuisines, traditionally served in a cast iron pan or tajine with bread to mop up the sauce. It is also popular in Israel, where it was introduced by Tunisian Jews and Maghrebi Jews, hundreds of thousands of whom immigrated to Israel during the 1950s.

Thats about its history, let me talk about its present. Its the most delightful, filling and balanced egg breakfast you can think of. I have plenty of other eggs for breakfast recipe on my blog including Italian Frittata, Wrapped French ToastMexican Casserole Eggs and soon Coming Polenta with Eggs. But this one wins the race. Ever since I made it the first time I have been doing this every weekend. This seems to have been my husband’s favourite currently.
