What is shakshuka?

INGREDIENTS
virgin extra olive oil
1 big sliced onion
2 green bell peppers, diced 2 peeled and chopped garlic cloves
Ground coriander, 1 teaspoon
Sweet paprika, 1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Red pepper flakes with a pinch
Pepper and salt
1/2 cup tomato sauce and 6 big tomatoes, chopped
6 large eggs, 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley, and 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint

INSTRUCTIONS
Grab a large nonstick pan. It is heated with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the minced garlic, cumin powder, ground coriander, sweet paprika, and red pepper flakes after that. Cook it well. Salt and pepper are then added. Cook the mixture until the veggies are tender.
Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. For 15 minutes, the mixture should simmer with the cover on the pan. The gravy can then be thickened by covering the pan and continuing to simmer it. The tomatoes can be lightly mashed.
Make 6 indentations in the pan after the tomatoes are done cooking. Ascertain their equality.

Crack the 6 eggs into this area of the pan. When the egg whites are set, lower the heat, cover the pan, and continue cooking.
Remove the lid and stir in the mint and parsley, both finely cut. Additionally, you may season the eggs with additional salt and pepper. Serve hot.
