  1. I just made this – my goodness it is delicious, thank you. I tweaked it a bit though by adding turmeric and feta cheese and substituting Aleppo chili pepper for the chili flakes. I also used fresh diced tomatoes, not canned.

  2. Here’s a thought. Tomatoes weren’t introduced in Middle East until the 18th century. They were, however, introduced to the Iberian Peninsula in the 16th century. It’s quite possible that the dish originated in Spain and went to the Middle East and North African regions…

  4. I don't even know how I found this video, it looked so delicious that I had to make it myself, and I'm addicted to it now! Oddly enough after finding it, I started seeing it in a lot of TV cooking shows, on magazine covers, etc. It seems to be the dish of the moment.

  8. Cook times of the sauce and the eggs are too long. You end with a dry base and almost hard, non runny yolks.

  14. I tried the recipe. DO NOT use as much chili powder as she says, it came out so spicy, I couldn't eat it. And definitely reduce the sugar in half or don't put any sugar. At first it felt very sweet, but then the spicy chili overwhelmed everything. Bottom line, don't add the spices quantity she says.
