Instructions

Sambal Goreng Telor is a tasty Indonesian egg dish that holds a special place in my heart. It's something I often experienced on the table during our Indonesian nights at home when my mother would whip up her delicious recipes.

Now it's your turn! Serve this sambal goreng telor warm as a delicious accompaniment to your favorite Indonesian dishes, such as beef rendang, sticky tempeh, nasi goreng, gado gado or any other Indonesian dishes of your choice.

What is Sambal Goreng Telor?
Sambal Goreng Telor is a traditional Indonesian dish featuring hard-boiled eggs cooked in a flavorful and spicy coconut-based sauce. The sauce is made with a combination of aromatic spices such as onion, garlic, chili peppers, shrimp paste, and candlenuts, along with coconut milk, palm sugar, and sometimes tamarind paste for a tangy twist. The eggs are first boiled, then lightly fried to add texture before being simmered in the spicy coconut sauce, allowing them to absorb the rich flavors.

Step 1
Cook the eggs until hard-boiled (12 min), then shock them in cold water and peel them nicely.

Step 2
Heat some oil and fry the eggs until they are lightly browned.

Step 3
Grind in the mortar: onion, garlic, sambal, shrimp paste, and candlenuts into a delicious spice paste. You can also do this in a food processor.

Step 4
Put a dash of oil in the pan where you fried the eggs and sauté the spice paste over low heat until it begins to smell fragrant.

Step 5
Then stir in the coconut milk, palm sugar, and tomato paste.

Step 6
Add the bay leaves, galangal, and lemongrass, cover the pan, and let it simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Step 7
Add the eggs, and optionally the beans, to the sauce and let them simmer for 5 minutes. This allows the flavors to infuse into the eggs.

Enjoy!
