  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 340 g (2-1/4 cups) canned stewed tomatoes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, and sweat the onions and garlic until they are translucent.
  2. Add the turmeric and cumin, and stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, and season to taste. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  4. Make four “nests” in the mixture, and crack one egg into each nest, taking care not to break the yolks.
