Indian shakshuka (tamatar par eedu) Give a spicy twist to your favorite shakshuka with this Indian style recipe – think aromatic spices, tomato-based sauce and poached eggs. The perfect brunch for an extra special day!
Shakshuka – one of my most favorite ways to start the day. I love toasted sourdough dipped in deliciously good spiced tomato goodness. What’s not to love?
Well, tamatar par eedu (eggs on tomato), in other words, Indian style shakshuka is a Parsi breakfast delight that’s utterly delicious and loaded with Indian spices. The spices literally elevate the dish to another level making it the ultimate version of shakshuka. The best part? It’s super nutritious and easy to make. I love to serve this with fluffy naan, however, feel free to toast a few slices of sourdough for a quick brunch.
How To Make Indian Shakshuka
Start with sauteing some onions in a little oil. When they are soft and translucent, add in ginger, garlic, and green chilies. Stir fry until aromatic. Next up, stir fry the ground spices including ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala and red chili powder. These spices add that extra level of flavor to these dishes.
Stir in canned tomatoes and coriander (cilantro) leaves. Add a touch of jaggery for a beautiful contrast with spiced tomatoes. Once the tomatoes are cooked, make a few small indents in the tomato sauce. Crack the eggs in them and poach. Cook the eggs as per your liking. And you have Indian style shakshuka! You can also make a few naans to go with the shakshuka if you like. Enjoy!
