Tunisia is said to be the home of this recipe. The Israeli cuisine came with Jewish immigrants from the Maghreb countries (Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Mauritania). They took this dish with them on their journey to the Promised Land. Soon Shakshuka, together with falafel and humus, became a favorite dish.
