Been craving this dish for ages! Finally made it for my lunch the other day, it’s light but filling enough and pretty healthy, perfect for lunch. ( Original recipe is from Mia Aristanti )


2 eggs

4 pieces of tofu, cut, fry lightly

50g bean sprouts

2 or 3 spring onions, chopped

fried onion, as you like

3 or 4 tbsp sweet soy sauce

salt & pepper to taste

For the peanut sauce:

4 tbsp raw nuts, sauté

6 chillies (less if you don’t like too spicy)

1 tbsp palm sugar

1 tsp shrimp paste



Using food processor blend roughly all the peanut sauce ingredients.  Add warm water until it becomes like a paste. Put aside.

Fry eggs, tofu and half of spring onions with oil about 5 – 10 minutes.  Place the mix on the plate, add bean sprouts and fried onion and the rest of spring onions.  Pour the peanut sauce, add sweet sauce to taste.  It can be ate as appetizer or serve with rice if you’d like.
