Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, when hot add the onions and chilis and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until softened. Add the bell peppers and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, salt, and pepper and cook for another 30 seconds.
Pour the tomatoes into a large bowl and carefully crush with your hands. Stir in the tomatoes and their juices to the pan, along with the 1/2 cup of water. Simmer for 15 or so minutes, until sauce reduces slightly and thickens. Stir occasionally.
Break the eggs over the tomato sauce. Continue cooking until the egg whites solidify and the yolks are still slightly runny, about 6-8 minutes. Add crumbled feta cheese and parsley.
