Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Level: Medium


  •  1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ¼ teacup of dendê oil
  • ½ dedo-de-moça pepper, deseeded
  • 1 peeled and deseeded tomato, chopped
  • 1 dessert spoon of coriander
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 dessert spoon of chopped green onions
  • Salt to taste


Braise the onion and garlic in dendê oil, until soft. Add the pepper, tomato, coriander, and lime juice. Add 2½ teacups of water, season with salt and cook over low heat, until the tomato begins to fall apart. Add the whole eggs, close the lid and boil – the eggs should be cooked, but their yolks still soft. Sprinkle the green onions and serve immediately.
