    Oregano is similar to Ajwain. Use Ajwain seeds if you can't find Oregano.

    Pouring it means just breaking the egg directly over the tomato paste. Make sure egg yolk does not break.


    When you mention pouring eggs, do u mean that we just break the eggs directly into the tomato paste or do we just put the egg white or do we beat the egg well before and then add to the paste...please clarify

    After pouring eggs on tomatos, put some grated processed cheese, then bake. It will enhance flavour and taste greatly.

    Its not shallow hole but shallow dipression in tomato paste that you have cooked. This is done so that egg does not fo out when you crack eggs on tomato pste. Hope this explains.
