Eggs on Tomatoes / Red & Sunny

One of my daughter's favourite way of having eggs is this delicious sunny side up on a layer of stewed/cooked tomatoes. Not only is this very easy to make but this is a perfect accompaniment with bread. Her name to this dish is Red & Sunny !




What's in it:-
  • Eggs- 3
  • Tomatoes - 3 to 4
  • Tomato Ketchup/Sauce - 1 to 2 tsp - to taste - optional
  • Onion - 1 -large - chopped finely
  • Garlic - 3 to4 pods- finely chopped
  • Green Chillis - 2 - finely chopped - to taste
  • Basil Leaves- a few - chopped - optional
  • Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Sugar - 1/2 tsp - optional
  • Lemon juice - 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves - a few sprigs - finely chopped
  • Pepper - to taste
  • Olive Oil - little
How:-

Separate the egg whites & yolks. Beat the egg whites till stiff. In the meanwhile blanch, peel & roughly pulp the tomatoes. In a round non stick pan/skillet, add olive oil and stir-fry the onions for a few seconds. Now add the garlic, green chillis & cumin powder and saute. Add the roughly pulped tomatoes & tomato ketchup (optional) and let it stew till it thickens.Now add the lemon juice, salt & sugar(optional). Stir well and flatten it before pouring the beaten egg whites over. At this point u can add basil leaves if you want. Now drop the egg yolks gently.




Cover the skillet and let it cook till the eggs are set. 



Season with pepper/oregano and garnish with coriander leaves. Cut in to slices & serve hot with crusty/toasted bread or enjoy the slices just like that with a bowl of soup !



Enjoy !
