What’s in it?

  • 3 eggs
  • 5 chillies
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tomato
  • Sugar and salt
  • Lard or oil
  • Spring onions
* 1 serving

How’s it made?

  1. Boil chillies, garlic, and tomato with some sugar and salt in approximately 5 minutes. Take them off the heat, cool down, and puree them in a blender.
  2. Hard boil eggs and peel them.
  3. Fry eggs to be golden all sides. Ideally, use lard instead of oil for a more desirable golden colour of eggs.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and throw the chilli mixture in for a quick stir-fry.
  5. Finally, add eggs in the pan and fry for 5-7 minutes so that all ingredients are well-absorbed.
  6. Turn off the heat. Cut the eggs in half and assemble them on a plate with a handful of chopped spring onions sprinkled on top. Serve with steamed rice.
