Fried Eggs with Dates (Aagwa)

This is a childhood favourite! The sweetness of the dates fried in butter with the lightly salted runny egg yolks is simply irresistible! This Fried Eggs with Dates is a must try.


  • 6 medium eggs - بيض
  • 12 small dried dates (deseeded) - تمر
  • 3 teaspoon butter - زبدة
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper (to taste) - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. In a pan, melt the butter and add the sliced dried dates, then stir for a minute or less.(Make sure not to burn the dates, they will still cook more with the egg and you want them nice and soft.)
  2. Carefully break the eggs and let them fry with the dates on a low heat until the egg white is set and the yolk is still runny. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with your favourite bread!
