“Crushed” crispy eggs (Telur Geprek), without the crushing.. :)

This dish is viral on the internet and I assume also in Indonesia. So, since I can’t find something like this here in Stuttgart, I tried to make it. The concept of this is very similar to “Ayam geprek”, deep fried chicken that you crush on the “Ulekan” with chili mix. It is so delicious when you eat it with rice. I had once when I was back in Indonesia.

Now that there is a version with egg, I give it a try. it is so crispy and just taste Indonesian…:) The only thing I don’t do is the “crushing” the chili on the fried egg, because I don’t have the tool for it. You still have a very tasty deep fried egg with the chili mix and steamed white rice._DSC1516.JPG
