Chilied Eggs (Sambal Telur) Recipe

This recipe will turn ordinary eggs into an addictive appetizer or side dish. With a crispy skin and a sweet and spicy sauce drizzled over the top, these eggs always get a great reaction. Incredibly easy to prepare, the boiled eggs can be made ahead of time and kept until ready to deep fry. The sauce will also keep for up to a week in the refrigerator when tightly covered with plastic wrap or in a sealed container. Always make more of these than you think you need to because people can’t resist them.

Ingredients :

    • Oil for deep-frying
    • 4 large eggs, hardboiled and shelled
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
    • 1 tablespoon Fried Shallots (see below)

Method :

    1. Heat the oil in a wok or deep pot over medium high heat.
    2. Fry the hardboiled eggs for 21/2 to 4 minutes until golden brown and crisp all around. Drain the eggs on a paper towel and let the eggs cool down for a few minutes.
    3. In a small bowl, mix the salt, sweet soy sauce, and sambal oelek until thoroughly blended.
    4. Slice the eggs lengthwise in half and arrange on a serving plate. Drizzle the sauce over the eggs. Garnish with a sprinkling of Fried Shallots.
