SHAKSHUKA - Tomatoes and Eggs Arabian Breakfast (Middle Eastern)

Shakshouka (also shakshuka, shaqshuqa, Hebrew: שקשוקה‎) is Middle Eastern dish consisting of poached or fried eggs cooked in a sauce of tomatoes, peppers, onions, and spices (often including cumin, turmeric, and chillies), and usually served with white bread. It probably originated in Tunisia.

Shakshouka dish is now a staple of Tunisian, Algerian, Egyptian, Moroccan, Somali, and Yemeni cuisines, and is also popular in Israel, where it was introduced largely by Tunisian Jews after the Jewish exodus from Arab lands.
