  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 tsp Harissa and Saffron
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced

  • Add Saffron Harissa. Let it cook and infuse for a couple of minutes stirring the whole time.

  • Indent the mixture with the back of a spoon to make wells and prepare it for the eggs.
  • Crack the eggs into a small bowl first, then pour the egg into the wells you made. Season with pepper and salt.
