Shakshuka With an Indian Twist

Shakshuka With an Indian Twist

This dish is close to my heart because of how much time it took to conceptualize it and get the flavor profiles correct. Here’s a shakshuka, Indian style!

I’ve started experimenting with new ingredients that I’ve never really cooked with before, butternut squash being one of them. I always found it to be intimidating until I actually dove in and tried to use it in my recipes. I wanted to create a comforting Fall season dish that incorporated this delicious vegetable, but I also wanted to give it an Indian twist because I love fusion recipes. You don’t find butternut squash in many Indian dishes so it was difficult to figure out which spices to use and how to balance all the flavors to create something that actually tastes good. Not to mention, I had never made shakshuka before, let alone use a completely new vegetable in it.
