Tikka Masala Shakshuka
Shakshuka is a breakfast of eggs poached in tomato sauce common in Israel. Being one who favors spice, I thought the eggs would go well with the creamy and spicy tomato-based Tikka Masala. It can be a breakfast, lunch or dinner, served with a light salad and bread. Here is my version.
- 4-6 eggs
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 hot chili pepper, chopped
- 1 tbsp garam masala
- 1 cup whole milk (preferably cream)
- 3 large tomatoes, wedged
- 3 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1-3 tsp hot chili powder
- Salt to taste
- *Garam Masala (adapted from Allrecipes KitchenBarbarian Easy Garam Masala)*
- 1 tbsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cardamom (or crushed whole cardamon)
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cloves (preferably ground, but whole is OK)
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- Mix all of the Garam Masala spices. Feel free to double or triple recipe to make sufficient amounts.
- Fry in butter, chopped onion, garlic and hot chili peppers.
- Once fragrant, add wedged tomatoes.
- Once tomatoes have softened, add garam masala, hot chili powder, tomato paste and brown sugar. Allow mixture to fry a little.
- Add milk to mixture. Allow to come to a simmer.
- Mix well and add salt to taste.
- Add eggs and allow to poach to desired level.
- Garnish with parsley and serve with bread.
