A Classic Asian Egg Dish: Fried Eggs In Sweet Soy Sauce

This is a simple Asian homestyle fried egg dish. The eggs are first fried to perfection and then an aromatic spiced sweet soy sauce is drizzled on them before serving. The fried eggs itself is already so enticing as the egg whites are fried till the edges turn crunchy and the egg yolks are a crispy golden brown colour but still runny.

Fried Eggs With Sweet Soy Sauce

An Egg Dish That Tastes As Good As It Looks!

Hence, when drizzled with the aromatic black sweet soy sauce, the fried eggs taste just amazingly flavourful. When served garnished, they do not just taste good but they look great too. Serve it with steamed rice and you have a quick meal on the go. Definitely a favourite for egg lovers and for those on the go, especially those who enjoy eggs with a little caramel on them.

As always, Enjoy!

Use super fresh eggs for this dish. To fry the eggs: Gently pour the cracked eggs (one at a time) into the hot oil. After frying for 1 minute, reduce heat to medium and continue to fry till the underside of the egg is firm and edges of the egg white turn crispy but the yolk is still runny. Carefully slide a spatula under the egg, flip and cook for a further minute till the yolk begins to thicken but still runny. Then remove from wok and set aside.

there’s a typo : 1shallotminced, chicken or pork

Dont think you meant to include “chicken or pork” – the recipe doesnt call for any and you labelled it as “halal”

Yes, it’s a typo error. Thanks for pointing out.
