This gutsy dish is genuine street food and a brilliant family dish for brunch, lunch or supper.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 red or green pepper, halved deseeded and sliced
  • 1-2 red chillies, deseeded and sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes

  • 4 eggs
  • small bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 6 tbsp thick, creamy yogurt

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Stir in the onions, pepper and chillies. Cook until they begin to soften. Add the tomatoes and sugar, mixing well. Cook until the liquid has reduced, season.
  2. Using a wooden spoon, create 4 pockets in the tomato mixture and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan and cook the eggs over a low heat until just set.
