Steps

Sauté them for a few minutes to allow them to release there aroma.


Whilst it is sautéed chop up the tomato, pepper, onion, garlic & grate the ginger.


Once the seed mixture has nicely heated through add the chopped up, ginger onion, garlic to the frying pan let them soften.


Then add the tomato and pepper. Then water and tomato purée and give it a good stir.


If your tomatoes are quite sour it’s time to add a tsp of sugar but make sure you taste it to see if it’s needed. Add salt and pepper.


Whilst it is simmering, slice the bread and place in the toaster.
When the sauce has thickened and all mixed together add the eggs. Leave to simmer on a low heat, it can help if you put on a lid if you have one.


Whilst the eggs are cooking, make the sumac yogurt. Simply mix it together then chop up some parsley. Drizzle some olive oil over the egg mixture! It’s then ready to serve! Tuck in and enjoy 😊
