By adding a nice little deep fried boiled egg into your sambal you are sure to get a very easy level up on your sambal game. A nice eggy and rich level up to any rice dish. Here is a quick and super simple dish that will get you and your family enjoying a lovely meal.
BRING ON THE HEAT
8 Red Chilis (large)
4 Red Onions
4 White Onions
4tb Fish Sauce
Begin by PEELING & CHOPPING your onions into quarters.
Chop your chilis into chunks and if you would like more heat feel free to add in more chilis.
In a blender add in your chopped Onions with 1/8 cup of water and blend till a smooth paste forms. (Don't Look at it, it will 100% make you cry).
In a pan or wok add enough oil to cover the base of the pan and heat on medium high heat. Once hot, add in your blended onion paste be careful it SPITS. Fry till fragrant and the mixture starts to turn a slightly darker colour (20 minutes)
Blend your chilis with a little bit of water till smooth, like very smooth.
Add your chili paste into your pan and mix well with the onion mixture and continue to fry on medium low heat for about 30 minutes till the colour deepens and the mixture thickens and becomes a paste like mixture.
Whilst your sambal is bubbling away set 8 eggs to boil and once they are fully cooked about 10-12 minutes shock them in cold water and gently peel them and set them aside.
Season your sambal with 4tb of fish sauce, 1ts of salt and 1.5tb of sugar. If it appears a bit dry add in a little more oil and mix well.
In a seperate pot add in some oil and heat it up to high heat. Once hot gently set your eggs to deep fry just till they develop this brown crispy wrinkly crust. Remove them and add them into your sambal giving it a good mix together.
