Spicy Padang-style Eggs Recipe – Resep Gulai Telur

Ingredients :

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups (500 ml) thick coconut milk
  • 1/2 turmeric leaf, shredded (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Crispy Fried Shallots,  to garnish (optional)

Spice Paste

  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh galangal, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 in (1 cm) fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2–4 bird’s-eye chilies, deseeded
  • 5 shallots, peeled
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

Method :

  1. Prepare the Crispy Fried Shallots (if using).
  2. Boil the eggs for 7 to 8 minutes until hard, then drain and plunge into a basin of cold water to cool. Peel the eggs and set aside.
  3. Prepare the Spice Paste by grinding all the ingredients coarsely in a mortar or blender and adding a little coconut milk if necessary to keep the mixture turning. Set aside.
  4. Bring the coconut milk slowly to a boil in a wok or saucepan. Add the Spice Paste and turmeric leaf (if using), mix well and simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the eggs and continue to simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes.
