“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

  • Mix flour, corn starch, and salt together. Once it’s mixed, divide it into 2.

  • Preheat vegetable oil in a deeper pan/wok on medium-high.
  • Cover the egg first with the liquid flour mix, then the dry flour mix, and back again to the liquid mix. Deep fry into the hot oil._DSC1512.JPG

Hello there! If you are stopping by this page, you are probably searching for easy Asian home-cook meal inspirations that are uncomplicated, quick, budget-friendly, and still tasty and delishhh….. That’s what I am going to share in this blog. I am not a chef, I cook because I love it and I enjoy it. To give you a little background of who I am…. My name is Dewi, a self-made home-cook who enjoys filling her kitchen in with tasty and delicious of Asian food. I was born and grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia where I have never learned how to cook (except frying an egg or two, add soy sauce, and eat it with rice) and never thought I would have to cook ever in my life. Because my mom, who was (still is) the “family chef” had never encouraged the children to be involved in the kitchen. So, my passion for food and cooking came later on when I went abroad. In 2006, I moved to Beijing, China where I lived for a good 9 years. I occasionally cooked as I preferred to eat out or to order in, for a simple reason, it’s convenient and affordable (back then). My cooking journey became more apparent in 2015 when I decided to move to Germany. Eating out, especially for Asian food is expensive and not authentic. The selection of Asian restaurants is limited and because of the high price, it would mean that I would have to burn a hole in my pocket if I want to do it often. So now that I have a small family (my husband, my son, and I), I cook not only for myself but also for them. I like to try new things like occasional baking or non-Asian food. For that being said, I want to share my cooking journey with you and hope that you can find new food inspirations that you can do yourself at home, either for yourself or your family, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Happy cooking! =) Xoxo Dewi
