How to Make Yemeni Shakshouka (Yemeni Spiced Scrambled Eggs)


  1. In a large pan, drizzle olive oil over medium heat. Once heated, add the diced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent. Stir in the garlic and chili. Cook until just fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  2. Add the tomatoes, cumin, and turmeric. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have softened, 5-10 minutes. Season with salt.

    Garnish with cilantro.
