Boiled, Fried, Sambal-Smothered Eggs (Guest post for plusixfive supperclub)



Boiled eggs were the first few things I learnt to cook and till now I love these simple little things. Indeed there’s nothing better than cutting into a hard-boiled egg from a happy hen to reveal orange yolks that are still slightly creamy. Well, nothing better except that same egg, deep-fried to create a crisp golden jacket, and then smothered with my must-have sambal chilli paste

This is a guest post for Goz, the crazy chef behind the crazy brilliant plusixfive Singapore supperclub. And now onto the exciting news, this is going to be part of the menu for this Sunday's supperclub. And onto more exciting news, I'll be cooking alongside Goz, or rather under Goz's command and barking orders.

  4. I should really try this next week. Hubby chows through more eggs than I know any human on this planet. Sambal is his favorite. I'm sure I'd get a really happy chappy if I ever made eggs with sambal. Great layout BTW. For a 21 year old, you've accomplished more than I ever did.

  7. Deep-fried eggs? :D Well damn, I thought I knew every way of eating eggs... I'd never have thought of dunking them in oil before. Eggs with chilli sauces go amazingly well, so I can imagine the sambal is a perfect accompaniment... Looks delicious :)

  8. YUM! We often did Sambal Oelek in our eggs - before kids at least. Thanks for the reminder. And boiled-fried - great idea!

    1. Thanks Natalia! That's also the way the more known Thai appetiser, son-in-law eggs are made, just that they use a different dressing (:

  9. What a combination! Love the piquant spiciness of sambal paired with earthy eggs. Fantastic.

  10. Wow, I think I'm in love with your part-time job already!! If only there are farmers' markets here just like those in the UK. I could go crazy with all the fresh produce & I'll surely be cooking every single day!! Btw, I love the smell of freshly peeled hard boiled eggs! I love egg sambal and it's been a while since I cooked this, it's making me drool now. All I need is some plain rice right now! Yummy!

    1. wow I'm chuffed to have you comment, especially since you're definitely more of an expert on nonya food than me for sure!

      p.s. I love my job too.

  11. I have always enjoyed eggs either fried or hard boiled and actually I am having some hard boiled tonight. It's a pity I cannot smother them with sambal because it looks particularly luscious.
    (The organic egg producers say here the colour depends on the food (some give carrots to hens so that the yolks become orange, but some don't do anything special). I always get lighter coloured eggs in winter and orange the summer...). Congratulations for you new job!

    1. That's what I would expect too, its the same with butter. In summer, the butter is a deeper golden yellow because the cows get to feed on the lush green fields instead of winter silage. I love how our food reflects the environment (:

  12. Exciting! Congratulations :)))
