ABOUT ShakShuka - Fusion Style RECIPE

Shakshuka is a popular Israeli breakfast, where the eggs are poached gently on a bed of onion-tomato gravy. All egg lovers will simply enjoy this simple delicacy. Bell peppers are generally added, but I added some potatoes instead. This is my version of this amazing dish with an Indian flavour - fusion style. Extremely yummy, it can be relished with any form of rice preparation or Indian bread.
