Yemeni shakshouka eggs and tomato dish ( sheba yemeni food )

Recipe Needed: 

Shakshouka is a popular egg and tomato dish in the middle east and North Africa. In North Africa, it is usually eaten with poached eggs but in Yemen, it usually has scrambled eggs and is made with green chilis so it is spicy. Served with milk tea and malawah bread or yemeni roti, it makes the prefect breakfast or quick dinner.
