Chop the onions, and tomatoes fine. Deseed the peppers and chop into small pieces. Heat oil in a large saute pan. Add onion and saute over medium heat for a few minutes until softened. Sprinkle a little salt on top and add the peppers and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes and spices. Stir. Cover and cook for 5 minutes until the tomatoes become hot and mushy. Uncover and mash the tomatoes gently with the back of a ladle. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low.
Break the eggs one by one into this thick sauce. Use the spoon to break the yolks and lightly stir the eggs into the tomato mixture. Place the lid back on and cook over medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the eggs are barely set (Note). Turn off the heat. Let it rest for a few minutes to finish cooking.
Serve hot with a sprinkling of fresh herbs, cheese or chili flakes.
Turn off the heat when the eggs are a little underdone than you prefer as the eggs will keep cooking for a little while in the hot sauce.
