  1. Rub a little oil on the red bell pepper and roast it in the gas oven. Once roasted peel the skin and slice it.
  2. Boil the tomatoes, peel the skin and mash them using a fork.
  3. Heat a heavy bottom pan or a skillet. Add the butter and olive oil. Now add the chopped onions, garlic, green chillies, red bell pepper and saute them. Once the onion softens add the mashed tomatoes.
  4. Now add salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, cumin, tomato ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and mix. Cook this for 10 mins.
  5. Make 4 deep wells in the pan and add the raw eggs. Cover the pan and cook it for 10 mins. till the eggs are done.

My Tip:

I sometimes like to add Meat Masala preferably from Everest which gives it an Indian twist.
