Turkish Menemen Recipe
2 tbsp olive oil
2 onions , sliced
1 red or green pepper , halved deseeded and sliced
1-2 red chillies , deseeded and sliced
400g can chopped tomatoes
1-2 tsp caster sugar
small bunch parsley , roughly chopped
6 tbsp thick, creamy yogurt

STEP 1 Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Stir in the onions, pepper and chillies. Cook until they begin to soften. Add the tomatoes and sugar, mixing well. Cook until the liquid has reduced, season.
STEP 2 Using a wooden spoon, create 4 pockets in the tomato mixture and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan and cook the eggs over a low heat until just set.
