Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce

These are absolutely stunning piece of art work, I would say, and of course, tasty! Very simple to make, and give great joy in return.


  1. 4 Tomatoes, large and ripened, and finely diced.
  2. 1 large Onion, finely sliced.
  3. Cumin seeds (jeera), 1 spoon.
  4. salt
  5. black pepper
  6. fresh basil, 6 leaves, chopped.
  7. olive oil.
  8. Oregano, a pinch.
  9. 1 green chilly, finely chopped.


  1. Start with the sauce. heat some good glug of olive oil in a pan.
  2. now add cumin seeds, finely chopped onions. Caramelize them.
  3. Add in green chilies and diced tomatoes.
  4. Sprinkle some salt, cover with lid, and let it simmer for about 4-5 minutes.
  5. Now add about a cup of water, and bring to boil.
  6. You should have a nice, consistent sauce by now.
  7. gently break in eggs, at various places in the sauce. We will poach them now.img_1653.jpgimg_20160220_093751.jpg
  8. Keep basting them with liquid around.
  9. The egg whites will be ready in few minutes. Now it depends, how you like your yolks. Since I like them not too runny, I covered with lid for another 2 minutes or so.
  10. Serve with toasted bread of your choice.img_20160220_093023.jpg
