Fried Chili Eggs (Sambal Goreng Telur) are a delicious introduction to Indonsian cuisine as they entail many ingredients used in Indonesia and are savory, spicy, a little sour with a touch of sweetness. They are easy to prepare and absolutely delicious over rice.


* These ingredients are available at 99 Ranch Market and other Asian grocery stores.


  1. Hard boil the eggs, stirring them gently for the first 3 or 4 minutes of cooking so that the yolks are centered.
  2. Heat oil and fry onion and garlic until onion is soft and golden.
  3. Add trasi, sambal olek, laos powder and grated nuts and fry for a few seconds, crushing the trasi with the spoon.
  4. Add salt, sugar, coconut milk and lemon juice and simmer gently, stirring constantly, until thick and oily in appearance.
  5. Add the shelled and halved eggs, spooning the sauce over them.

Serve with rice either hot or at room temperature.
