Shabsuka - 19th Day Iftar

This was my first time making Shabsuka. I have a few recipes on Shabsuka, but was not sure which recipe to follow..looking at the ingredients and method, I have decided to go for this one..cause the other one the method was they fried the eggs first, which I thought it would be the same like eating kacang phool method..I wanted to experience something different(taking the risk since this was my first attempt) making some adjustment for myself...

Still remembered Mr Hubby advised me to do something(menu) which I have been familiarised with... for Ramadan cause fearing if I were to made any 'misadventure'..then people expecting to eat the food for break fast will be dissappointed... As for this, I am proud to say it met our expectations!!!! My mum goes for second servings..! which is quite rare...hehehe so the recipe below, is what I did for my Shabsuka..for original recipe please surf the below address..

500g minced beef(or sliced beef)
3 tbsp chili paste
3 tbsp minced garlics
2 tbsp minced ginger
4 tbsp curry powder
1 big onion diced
1 tomato diced
1 cup mix vegetables
1 can medium size tomato puree
4 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1-2 cups of water
salt and MSG to taste

Ingredients for toppings:-
2 big onions diced
2 tomatoes diced
some coriander leaves
1-2 red chilies sliced
1-2 green chilies sliced
2 tbsp fried shallots (optional)
6 eggs

Mix minced beef with garlics, ginger, and curry powder. Let it rest for at least 20 minutes.
Heat oil in wok and saute onions till soft. Add in chili paste and cook till oil goes up the surface.
Add in marinated beef and stir well. Add in 1-2 cups of water. When beef has reached 3/4 cooked, add in tomato puree, tomato sauce, mixed vegetables and diced tomatoes. Stir well and add in salt, sugar and MSG to taste. Adjust the taste(it should be a bit sour, sweet etc) according to your preferences. Let it simmer for a while and dish out.The mixture shouldn't be too thick or too thin.
Method for preparing Shabsuka:-

Put the beef in a bake able dish and level it.

Sprinkle all the topping ingredients like the tomatoes, onions, chillies, coriander leaves and fried shallots on top of the beef mixture.

Make small holes for eggs and bake at 180C degrees for 15 minutes or at least till the eggs are almost cooked.

Scoop the some mixture and serve hot with white toasted soft bread or toasted french loaves.
Note* Another method of serving shabsuka.
Serve beef mixture on a plate. Sprinkle the toppings. Add fried eggs.(No need to bake)..
and dip in with bread.
