Shakshuka (baked eggs) Recipe

If you are looking for a shakshuka recipe, look no further!
The smell of this delicious dish cooking away offers the promise of something exotic, warm, spicy and completely sumptuous.
This is my version, you can find lots of other derivatives of a shakshuka, some even add varying different beans and vegetables to it. I sometimes add some sliced chorizo if I am feeling a bit on the hungrier side.  
Befarma'id!
