Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan that has a lid, then soften the onions, chilli, garlic and coriander stalks for 5 mins until soft. Stir in the tomatoes and sugar, then bubble for 8-10 mins until thick. Can be frozen for 1 month.

  2. Using the back of a large spoon, make 4 dips in the sauce, then crack an egg into each one. Put a lid on the pan, then cook over a low heat for 6-8 mins, until the eggs are done to your liking. Scatter with the coriander leaves and serve with crusty bread.

Yummmmm! I made enough for 2 servings meaning to take the second for lunch. Succumbed to the cravings of my tongue and finished most of it for dinner. Definitely recommended.

This was lovely with a bit of bread for Dinner. I added a little pancetta that was needing to be used too. Would definitely make again!

This was gorgeous. I used basil, rosemary and pesto as I'm not a big coriander fan. Delicious with crusty bread and salad.

I was making this for supper so wanted to bulk it out a bit so added red peppers and chorizo and used ordinary tinned tomatoes instead of cherry. The eggs took far longer to cook than stated though and in the end I ended up bunging the whole lot under the grill. Would do again, but would put the pot in the oven once I added the eggs.

So easy and so delicious. I used normal tinned whole tomatoes and rosemary instead fo coriander, because that is what I had. A new family favourite.
