5 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and sliced in half
2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
1 large onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, chopped
1 candlenut*, grated (optional)
1 teaspoon galangal or laos powder*
1/2 teaspoon sambal oelek* (red pepper paste)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 bay leaf
1 cup coconut milk

In a skillet or wok (I prefer to use our wok), heat up the oil.

Sauté onion, garlic, candlenut, laos, sambal oelek and salt.

Be cautious to avoid burning.

Add brown sugar, bay leaf and coconut milk. Bring mixture to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour mixture over hard-boiled eggs and serve.

Selamat Makan!

Since my wife's tolerance for spicy hot food is a 1 and mine 10+, I always prepare Indonesian dishes on the mild side, because more sambal (Indonesian pepper paste) can be added at dinner time.
