Prepare the eggs : 

  • Just boil the eggs for 7 minutes if you like the yolk slightly soft or a good 10 minutes to get it really done. Take the eggs off and immediately immerse in cold water to stop it cooking even further. 
  • Peel the shell 
  • On a pan put the eggs and the sambal and stir gently on low heat.
  • Ready to serve eather half it or whole egg.

Two different type of Chicken eggs the common one is the brown colour and larger then ayam kampung (native chicken) which have whiter shell and the yolk is deep orange ( definitely taste better than common one)
