For 4 – 6 people you will need:
10 tomatoes or 5 beef tomatoes – grated
2 Green Turkish Peppers or 1/2 green bell pepper – finely diced
1 knob Butter
3 Beaten Eggs
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
Chili Flakes – as desired
Salt & Pepper
Heat the butter in a frying pan and saute pepper until soft. Turkish style green peppers easily available in your local Mediterranean shop, but be careful, usually mild once in a while they’ll pack a punch.
Once peppers soften, add grated tomatoes and cover pan. Simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes until reduced slightly. Add dried thyme and season.
Stir in beaten eggs and mix lightly, continuing to cook for a few minutes over a gentle heat. At this point I sometimes add a handful of grated ‘kasar’ cheese, similar to mild cheddar.
Serve immediately in pan or serving dish, accompanied by lots of bread. My family-in-law often adds sucuk (beef sausage) or minced meat.
