Eggs Poached in Thai sauce

The recipe of this dish was created in Shaju’s Kitchen, which was inspired by Shakshouka a dish which is of Tunisian and Moroccan origin. The original dish is eggs poached in the sauce of tomatoes, capsicum and onion which is often spiced with cumin. Here the eggs are poached in Thai sauces with broccoli, mushrooms, capsicum and onions. The flavor of the Thai sauces is awesome and it enhances the taste of the entire dish and tastes entirely different from the original one.
