BackstorySince 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.
- 5 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and sliced in half
- 2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 8 cloves garlic, chopped
