Couple of our south slavic dishes here…

The below dish had the simple name of “manja”.  It might have a Macedonian-slavic name, but I’m not sure of it.  The jews call it “shakshuka” – and is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions and herbs.

I’m not sure of its origins, if its a Slavic, Jewish or Mediterranean dish.  I guess there were a lot of Jews in Bitola and Salonika that may have inspired the rest of the population.  Its a really nice dish served on some toasted ciabatta bread.

Shakshuka may be at the apex of eggs-for-dinner recipes though in Israel it is breakfast food a bright spicy start to the day with a pile of pita or challah served on the side It also makes excellent brunch or lunch food Its a one-skillet recipe of eggs baked in a tomato-red pepper sauce spiced with cumin paprika and cayenne Photo Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times
