SHA – SHO or CHA – CHO uKa

Internet still ON-OFF.. :(, will trying to be back fulltime soon, till then one of my long lying draft :)

After you start food blogging you tend to bookmark too many recipes and always plan to try them sometime soon. I bookmark recipes for various reasons, most of the times to try out the innovative flavours of the dish but there are other reasons too; like if I get fond of the drooling visual snaps or even if the write-up of the post interests me or if I’m amused with the name of the recipe.

Yeah, I’ve handful of recipes bookmarked only cos of its witty names.

One of such was ShakShouka, nothing weird about this but to many SHA – SHO or CHA – CHO while pronouncing, which pleased me enough to bookmark this African dish. I found it initially @ Yasmeen later @ Faiza… it’s a Tunisian dish - quite a new area for me. IMG_3729

I followed Yasmeen’s recipe, Faiza has added Potatoes and eggplant which I didn’t have else both the recipes are on similar lines.

I loved the Onion, tomato and Green Pepper base sauce for the eggs.  I added green chillies and black pepper to it, which made the overall dish quite spicy.

We had it with Toasted Slice Bread; it was supposed to be Brunch but turned much heavier than a normal weekend Lunch. IMG_3730

Thanks girls for sharing such a diverse and appetizing recipe.

  12. Dear Kanchan
    This dish is great...I went to Faiza, but could not find the recipe...need to give a search tomorrow...
    I liked your comments at my blog...hummm..just make up your mind , you and foodie, buy ticket and land at Hong Kong and Macau ...u can decide in the morning and take flight in the evening ...visa on arrival and no hassle.
    But go after the typhoon season
    I am sure you are having exciting time settling down in your new house...
    Have a nice day

  13. The name might be a tongue twister but the dish sure is a tongue tickler with all the flavor combo.thanks for following my recipe :D

  14. @Da,
    I’ve mentioned the link “@ Faiza” .. just click on Faiza, hope you get it.
    We’ve been so busy with one thing or another that both of us are desperate for a vacation, so whenever someone posts about their travelogue it just kicks me for a simple vacation. IF we do plan will take your advice for sure.

    Totally agree with you, it has amazing blend of flavors. Thanks to you dear, just loved your beautiful pics and I had to bookmark it.
