what do I need to make easy shakshuka recipe ?

want to add a disclaimer, this is a slightly indianized version,  some alterations I have made how originally shakshuka is made to fit my indian pantry.

  • Replace Paprika with Kashmiri Red chilli powder – Paprika is the ingredient that brings the bright red and a mild heat to shakshuka, if you are not able to find paprika substitute with Kashmiri Red chilli powder.hilli powder.
  • Substitute Parsley with coriander leaves – Originally Parsley is a common ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisine and I opted to replace it with corriander leaves.
  • Thirdly, the spice blend – as I already wrote about it, if you can find Baharat spice blend you can use it, if not go with the recipe I have used the spices individually to bring the flavour. So, now lets see how to make this Easy shakshuka recipe.

How to make Shakshuka

  • Take a wide and large pan, add oil to it and once hot add finely chopped onions and garlic and little salt. Sauté it until it is soft and slightly golden. De-glaze the pan and add in the tomato purée and cook until the tomatoes and onions combine together and the mixture gets thicker.
  • Next add in the spice powders and cook until they are fully absorbed in the sauce. Add water to loosen it and the tomato paste. Cover and simmer for about 5 mins in low to medium flame. When you see the mixture is thickened a bit and also is a bit saucy, make little pockets and break open the eggs in to the pockets.
