Easy Jewish Shakshuka

This Jewish dish is perfect for lazy evenings or a quick meal with a glass of wine. Shakshuka which means messy in Arabic, this dish can be enjoyed with Baguette, Pita and even crisp. Adding Indian touch to it, have it with Khakra or Chappati. I have made this recipe so simple that even a newbie can cook under 15 minutes.
