An Ode to the Guru of Telur Masak Kicap - Nina

Nina made the much loved Telur Masak Kicap (Fried Egg in Soy Sauce) last night and put it up in her blog. She then set me a challenge : to cook her special dish of Telur Masak Kicap, which was mentioned in my first ever blog! Well... I was a bit apprehensive. No way can I make the dish any better!! But a promise is a promise...

I had breathing problem this morning and went into panic mode when I couldn't find my inhaler! So I thought I'd better stay home as I don't want it to move to a full blown asthma attack! I told Jules about misplacing my inhaler... he said that the inhaler thing is a bit ironic. It's suppose to help me but I also go panicky when I can't find my inhaler, and breathing problem gets worse when I panic! Weird! I guess it's like me and swimming. I can go snorkeling and scuba diving, and because I have the gear on me, I swim like a fish! Take all the gear off, I'll panic and will start splashing around screaming I'M DROWNING!

Anyway, even though I'm not well, I still have to eat. So, come lunch time I thought, OK, I'll make some Telur Masak Kicap. Started frying the egg, chopping the garlic, onion, ginger... that's when I discovered... I DON'T HAVE CHILLI! Oh well... time to improvise! I've got a bit of this garlic & chilli paste. I bang that in.



It doesn't really matter does it? As long as it tastes nice!! Hmmmmmmm.... I really couldn't wait for it! Nina, look below... I hope I've done you proud!


Now, all I have to do is eat it! YUM YUM!! I am in heaven! I think I put too much air asam jawa but it is still yummy! I had one... and I had another one... hmmmmm should I finish them up?

OK... I'll be nice and keep the rest for Jules' dinner tonight. But somehow, I don't think he'll appreciate this dish as much as a Malaysian!

i ikut your resepi.. cuma tak ada cili hidup! so i tukar... but then i rasa even if ikut your resepi sure lain. macam my grandad punya sambal udang. ikut macam mana pun i boleh rasa kalau orang lain yang buat! you jampilah!

oh... i won't bribe Milla... promise!

It's all very well but it looks nice and I'd like to know how it's done.
