Delectable Shakshuka


Having lived in Kuwait for more than a decade now, and with the help of my husband of course, it was about time I got my hands on to learn the art of Arabian Cuisine.

Arabic food is very flavourful and yet simple.
I have always loved food from this side of the world from the very first day I was introduced to it. Their cuisine is healthy, rich in protein and very light on your stomach if eaten in the right quantity.

Shakshuka is one such! It is a famous in the Middle East and North Africa.
Healthy and perfect food for a scrumptious breakfast, it goes very well when eaten along with some cut fruits, freshly squeezed orange juice along with a toasted bread.

This tasty Arabic delicacy not only keeps your stomach full but also ensures you are kept energetic all day. I was very glad to nail the recipe in my very first attempt without even my husband’s support. Do give it a shot and drop your comments below!
