Thai eggs with peppers

A simple recipe this week and an interesting derivation from Hungarian eggs.  This dish is something that can be made from items found in most family fridges, and even the local fresh markets.  These types of home cooking recipes always reflect not just the tastes of the region, but also the most abundant and cheap ingredients.  While the recipe calls for green bell peppers (capsicum), red or yellow can be used.

Ingredients Serves 4-6
Vegetable oil 3 tbspns
Onion, minced 1 medium
Garlic, chopped 1 clove
Green bell pepper, chopped 1
Tomatoes, roughly chopped 2 medium
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Coriander fresh chopped finely 1 tbspn
Eggs, lightly beaten 2 large

Cooking method

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onion, garlic and bell peppers.  Sauté until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.  Cover and simmer very slowly over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Now add tomatoes and continue to simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Season with salt, pepper to taste.  Add eggs, mixing well.  Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle with chopped coriander and serve immediately.
