Our SugarRoti Shakshuka recipe has only 6 steps, 5 fresh ingredients and on the table in less than an hour. Adding our delicious SugarRoti Egg Nu Spice blend makes this beautiful, savory dish taste truly amazing.
Enjoy over rice, quinoa, couscous, with a roti (also known as chapati – a round flatbread from India) warm crusty bread or by itself.
