Heat oil in a deep, heavy-based frying pan. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes until softened. Add chilli powder to taste with green and red peppers. Sauté, stirring frequently, for a further 10 to 15 minutes until peppers are soft. Add tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Stir with a spoon, crushing the tomatoes. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 40 minutes. With the back of a spoon, make four hollows in the tomato mixture, then crack an egg into each. Cover the pan tightly with a lid and cook for 3 minutes. Mix together Cheddar and Parmesan cheese and sprinkle over eggs. Cover pan again and cook a further 2 minutes, until the eggs are cooked. Serve immediately with crispy bread rolls or toast.
