Shakshuka, originally spelled as Shakshouka, has its origin in the Mediterranean cuisine. In its original cook, it is a tomato-based stew cooked with a medley of vegetables, minced meat and liver. However, with time, as the dish infiltrated to different other cultures and countries, variations are made. Like Americans have added eggs to the dish, Indian have removed the meat part and made a vegetarian version with oodles of Indian spices.
