She finely chopped some onions, tossed it with spices, poured tomato puree, allowed it cook for a while and then cracked a few eggs on top! I stood there, watching my roommate, as she effortlessly made our late night dinner. It was probably a version of Shakshuka that she was preparing but neither of us knew.

Even though I don’t plan the meals to a great detail, I still kind of roughly sort it out in my mind and do my grocery shopping accordingly. In spite of that, at times, I am out of veggies and out of ideas. Those days, I always ALWAYS go for egg curry. It’s like a routine!
