Chakchouka has many names like tchoutchouka, shakshouska, chouchouka, mekouba, and tastira. What ever you prefer to call it, the dish is made with a tomato, onion and chili pepper sauce spiced with cumin and coriander, and has poached eggs on top. In North Africa it's served as a lunch, or for breakfast but then without chili pepper and onions.
