Bayd wa Bandoura – Shakshuka

A deliciously spicy tomato and egg dish to start off your morning!

I can never forget the first time I had Bayd wa Bandoura! I was around 11 years old and I was visiting my grandparents in Palestine. My dearest uncle wanted to make me a special breakfast dish. He called it, “Shakshuka”. The name made me laugh. As a young child, I thought to myself, what kind of dish is called Shakshuka? I was excited to have new dish for breakfast. My uncle spent a good amount of time preparing the dish for me. When it was time to eat, I recognized the dish immediately as one that my mother always made for us. She called it, “Bayd wa Bandoura”. I learned that in countries like Morocco, they call it Shakshuka. I also learned that there are different ways to make this dish. It is a very simple and well-known breakfast in Palestine. My family is a big lover of Bayd wa Bandoura, with all its delicious spices!
