North African Egg (Gordon Ramsay)

This is one of our favorite summer weekend brunch , Gordon Ramsay's North African Eggs .  Easy & so flavourful with seasonal juicy tomatoes & capsicums .  I've added 1/4 tsp of chilli powder to make it even more spicier as we love hot spicy food !  Goes great with Basmati rice & salads .... YUM !
