Eggs with Hot Red Pepper Paste

(Reçelli Yumurta - Urfa - South East Anatolia Region)

Eggs with Hot Red Pepper Paste
2 eggs
1 tsp red pepper paste, sweet
1 tsp red pepper paste, hot
4 + 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Heat 4 tbsp olive oil in a small pan. Break the eggs. Do not scramble the eggs too much. Turn the heat to low. Pour 2 tbsp olive oil in a corner of the pan and dissolve the red pepper pastes. Stir together with the eggs. Do not overcook the eggs!

You can serve the eggs on the toasted bread. This spicy egg dish will warm you up during the cold winter days:)

*In Urfa, "hot red pepper paste" is called "jam"

Would it be easier to mix the pastes in the oil warming up then add the eggs as not to over cook them .?

What is hot pepper paste? Is it the same as chili?

Hi Rubi,
I've already posted the recipe under the Appetizers section, here;

You can find red pepper paste in Turkish or Mediterranean stores if you have any your area. You can shop from or which is online Turkish grocery store:)

I was wondering why it seemed to translate as jammy eggs! :) It was only on my most recent visit to Turkey that a friend pointed out 'jam' is the closest you can get to my name!
