Galayet Bandora

Fried Tomatoes with Onions

Galayet Bandora

This is a vegan recipe.

Galayet Bandora is Jordan's version of Shakshouka. For some reason, maybe I undercooked it, it didn't achieve the umami goodness of shakshouka and it was just OK.

Galayet Bandora


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 5 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • pita bread for serving


Heat oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan. Add the onion and saute until soft. Add the tomatoes and chile, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook until tomatoes are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with warmed pita bread.
