Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I have never measured the exact amounts i use here, these are approximate, so just adjust it to your personal taste.
  2. Spray a medium saucepan with cooking spray (or use butter if you prefer, it will taste better that way), and cook the onion until it is softened.
  3. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and spices, and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add eggs, and cook until just set.
  5. Eggs should be red-orange.
  6. Serve with pita bread.

We didn't love the flavour, it was different for eggs to us, but it is fine. The texture of the eggs is really soft which I didn't like. I used whole canned plum tomatoes blended up to make a sauce, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, freshly ground coriander, plus the rest. Not a recipe I would make again.

Very tasty but the tomato paste makes the texture of the eggs a little looser than usual. I would like some peppers mixed in with the eggs - even a Jalapeno though this may not be traditional I think it would taste excellent Thanks for posting Najwa I love to try new recipes.

really enjoyed these. I was trying to recreate eggs I ate a lot in Greece, these are similar. I used two tomatoes chopped up fine, and half an onion, and three eggs. Very nice, will make again. Oh and I put in a small amount of cubed cheddar cheese.
