Non-Veg Shakshuka

I made this dish about 1.5 mths back. An easy dish indeed that uses mince meat. But if you are lazy to buy mince meat, can use corned beef also *wink*. If I am not wrong, shakshukah is actually a middle eastern vegetarian dish. You can also make the vegetarian version by omitting the meat and replace with more vege and potatoes.


300gm mince meat
100-200gm mixed vegetable
2-3 large tomatoes, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
1 small can tomato puree
3-5 tbsp chilli paste, more if you like it spicy
1 tbsp meat curry
6 tbsp tomato ketchup
2 tbsp ginger paste
2 tbsp garlic paste
5 tbsp oil
salt to taste
4-5 large eggs
1 fresh red chilli, thinly sliced
1 fresh green chilli, thinly sliced
scallions and chinese parsley, finely chopped

1. Mix mince meat, garlic, ginger paste and curry powder and leave it to marinade for 20mins
2. Heat oil in the wok
3. Add chilli paste and fry it till oil separates
4. Add chopped onions and fry till it turns translucent
5. Add tomato puree, tomato ketchup, mince meat mixture and salt
6. Mix them well and let it simmer till the meat is cooked
7. Add chopped tomatoes, mixed vegetables, fresh chillies, scallions and parsley
8. Let it simmer and add a bit of water if the mixture gets too dry
9. Prepare a casserole dish, transfer cooked meat into the dish and pour eggs onto the meat mixture
10. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10minutes or until the eggs are cooked.
11. Serve hot and eat it with bread or rice
