Last Night's Dinner #57: Son in Law Eggs

Mmmmmm this was soooooo good.

I never ever ever heard of deep-frying hard boiled eggs before, until I landed on the Rasa Malaysia blog. First of all, this blog is amazing - beautiful food shots, her photo styling is immaculate and the dishes she whips up on a daily basis has me thinking about applying to be a live-in maid for free (as long as the food is included).

Deep-fried hard boiled eggs and fried shallots

It's such a simple dish but one of the most tastiest things I've made all year. I can totally see someone winning Top Chef with this dish.

It was very easy to make as long as you're not jittery about deep frying and messing around with 400F degree oil.

I had to substitute brown sugar for palm sugar and I also used Chunky Peanut Butter for "ground peanuts".

Just note that the shallots brown up almost immediately. My oil was super super hot after I fried the eggs so I turned off the heat before adding in the shallots (and they still cooked immediately). So just be careful!!!

Make this now! You won't regret it. And who can resist a dish called Son in Law Eggs?
