Sambal Goreng Trasi Telur (Eggs in Chilli Trasi Sauce/Huevo en Salsa de Trasi)

Ingredients (Serves 6)

  1. 3 eggs
  2. 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  3. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 clove garlic, crushed
  5. ½ teaspoon dried shrimp paste (trasi)
  6. 3 teaspoons sambal ulek or chilli powder
  7. ½ laos powder
  8. 3 kemiri or brazil nut kernels, finely grated
  9. ½ teaspoon salt
  10. 2 teaspoons palm sugar or substitute
  11. ½ cup coconut milk
  12. lemon juice to taste
Hard boil the eggs, stiring them gently for the first 3 or 4 minutes of cooking so that the yolks are centred. Heat oil and fry onion and garlic until onion is soft and golden. Add trasi, sambal ulek, laos and grated nuts and fry for a few seconds, crushing the trasi with the spoon. Add salt, sugar, coconut milk and lemon juice and simmer gently, stirring constantly, until thick and oily in appearance. Put in the shelled and halved eggs, spooning the sauce over them. Serve hot or at room temperature.
