Thai eggs with peppers


This is an interesting derivation from Hungarian eggs, and is something that can be made from items found in most family fridges.  These types of home cooking 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, and if you like some spice, judicious use of chilli paste will do the trick.

Cooking method

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onion, garlic and bell pepper. 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.
