Matbucha is a salad mainly made of tomatoes, roasted peppers, oil and garlic, which are all cooked together. The name of the dish originates from Arabic and means "cooked salad".
This dish was brought to Israel by the new immigrants of North Africa, mainly Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya - although the ingredients change a bit from one ethnicity to the other. A popular version of the Matbucha is the Israeli Shakshouka which is made by cooking it with eggs broken into the centre of the mixture.
