Shakshuka- my version. Here's another oldie but goodie Shakshuka recipe from my cooking blog that I no longer publish. I grew up eating Southern cuisine. I ate fried chicken, baked chicken, fried fish, baked fish.
Today, you can find many variations of shakshuka, like my Green Shakshuka with Brussels Sprouts and Spinach and Orange Shakshuka with Butternut Squash. You can also add feta or goat cheese and adapt it to. A few things that are perhaps a little different in my version, than a more traditional shakshuka, are the use of canned tomatoes (I explain this further down), roasted red peppers, wine, Spanish hot paprika, and feta cheese. You can have Shakshuka- my version using 13 ingredients and 4 steps. Here is how you achieve that.

Keep stirring until tomatoes are little bit soft. Add one cup of water, then add lentils. Cover the pot and cook them in medium heat until they are just cooked. Add the spinach, mix them well together. Then crack the eggs on Tops, put the lid back and keep cooking the eggs according to your choice..
- Serve the lentils in a dish, sprinkle Chopped coriander and green chilies on top..

I add a splash of heavy cream to marry the acidity of the tomatoes with the richness of the eggs, and I sprinkle crumbled feta on top. If you've never heard of shakshuka, it's a popular Middle Eastern dish where eggs are poached in a delicious tomato sauce. In my Indian version, I simmer the eggs in my tasty Indian onion masala sauce. This dish tastes like it takes ages to make, but really, it takes minutes, thanks to our handy pre-made onion masala. If you don't know about the magic sauce that is onion masala, then.
