  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Bake the baguettes to pack instructions, then set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, lidded frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the onion for 5-6 mins until softened. Add the paprika, chilli and garlic, and cook for 2 mins. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, stock pot, 250ml water, the sugar and the kidney beans; bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low-medium and bubble for 15 mins or until thickened. Stir through most of the coriander.
  3. Use a spoon to make 4 indents and break an egg into each gap. Cover then cook for 6-8 mins or until the whites have set and the yolks are cooked to your liking. Top with the remaining coriander and spring onions. Serve with the bread for dipping.
