Eggs in purgatory (Shakshouka)

Picture of Eggs in purgatory (Shakshouka)

This is an incredibly simple dish that basically consists of two items. The spiced tomato sauce and a fried egg, I think that I have managed to improve upon this even further with the addition of sliced chorizo and mozzarella cheese. I think at the moment that this dish is slightly obscure in the western world being far more common in the middle east and going by Shakshouka instead of Eggs in purgatory. This is an amazing dish and I would whole heartedly recommend you try to make it.
