Egg with Tangy Tamarind dressing

February 05, 2010
A very simple dish ...sneak peek at the ingredients ... manageable right? The only 'not so good' thing about this dish to deep fry the eggs....make sure the eggs are dry (use kitchen towels/paper), otherwise it'll splatter...and you'll ended up with extra work of cleaning up the mess....

  • 8 hard boiled eggs - deep fry until golden (optional: shallow fry)
  • Golden fried shallots
  • Fresh corriander leaves for garnishing
Tamarind dressing:
  • 3 tablespoon of tamarind extract
  • 2 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
Mix all in a small pan or saucepan, bring to boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Cut eggs in half and drizzle with tamarind dressing. Garnish with fresh coriander and deep fried shallots. Serve with steam rice or have it as entree...
