What you'll need

▫️ 1 tbsp canola oil
▫️ 1 large onion, sliced
▫️ 2 tbsp garam masala

▫️ 1 lime
▫️ 4 eggs
▫️ optional toppings: avocado, cilantro, Greek yogurt, nigella seeds


What to do

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a hot, oven-proof pan add oil and onions, and sautée until translucent and starting to caramelize. Sprinkle with garam masala and cook for 1 minute.

Add chopped tomato, cooking for another minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Then add the tomato puree, mix well, and bring to a boil.

Add honey, and the juice of 1 lime. Stir and reduce temp to low.

Carefully crack eggs into the tomato sauce, cover with a lid, and bake for 5-8 minutes depending on how well you like your eggs cooked.

Top with any additional topping you might like and serve with bread or flatbread.
