Now add peeled fresh or canned tomatoes. The tomatoes will help you make the yummy Shakshuka sauce. Let it come to the boiling point and then cover the pan with a lid and simmer it for 10-15 minutes until it becomes a thick sauce.

Step 5

Dig a well

Make small wells in the sauce. Make about four holes for each egg. Then pop in the eggs. Make sure to keep the egg-yolk solid. Then put on the lid, turn the flame to low, and let it cook until the eggs are properly cooked. However, make sure that the yolks are running. They taste delicious in Shakshuka. Other than that, it’s up to you. You can also fully cook them. Furthermore, use a handful of cilantro to top it off and serve with bread. Here we served it with garlic bread.

We did it!
