Sambal Eggs

Sambal egg is one of my favourite Malay dish when I eat from outside. Once I tried to cook this but I couldn’t get the correct appearance & taste. Last week I saw a linked post to my ongoing event Hot & Spicy treats from Daily-Cuppa blog. By seen the recipe, I wanted to try it again & it came out nicely.

Here is the recipe.
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
2 hardboiled eggs
Ingredients to blend together
2-3 tbspn red chili flakes (or dried chili)
1 medium size onions sliced
2-3 garlic cloves sliced
1 tsp. belachan (shrimp paste)
1 tsp. salt (or to taste)
Other ingredients

1 tsp. tamarind pulp, dissolve in 1/4 cup hot water.
1 Tbls. Sugar
2-3 Tbs. oil to fry

Blend all ingredients (under blending ingredients) together & keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan & fry the eggs until golden brown. Remove & keep aside.

Then add blended ingredients to the heated oil.
Fry for about 5-6 minutes until oily appearance comes out.
Stir well over low flame and add tamarind juice and sugar. Cook for another few minutes until the mixture becomes thick.
Pour this mix over the fried eggs.
Serve hot.
