Rude Food by Vir Sanghvi: Shakshuka, and great eggspectations

Jul 19, 2023 07:07 PM IST

Shakshuka and its many variations have gone global. Could a Parsi dish be the Indian cousin that’s been under our noses all along?

Because I write about food every week, I should have heard of shakshuka much earlier. But the truth is that I only became aware of the dish just over a decade ago. And even then, it wasn’t because I came across it at some faraway North African location. I noticed it first in India where it has suddenly become a menu standard, popping up all over the country and featuring on recipe shows.
