Simple Quail Eggs Sambal
A nasi lemak or rice dish without sambal paste is incomplete — sambal adds layers of complex flavours to our everyday ingredients. This bright red paste adds vibrancy to a simple ingredient with its zesty and tantalizing notes. Sambal is a notably versatile and robust component in traditional Malaysian cooking. It’s the essential component of many scrumptious and colourful local dishes, matching well with a wide array of ingredients from vegetables to eggs. Quail eggs might be small for their size, but they are surprisingly rich in nutrients. A single quail egg provides a significant intake of your daily vitamin and iron — all in a serving that contains only 14 calories. Try out this simple quail eggs sambal recipe for your next meal!
Firstly, boil the quail eggs in a pot. Then, peel off the shells and set them aside. Now, it’s time to prepare the sambal paste! Start off by sautéing some chilli paste, garlic, shallot and shrimp paste — do so until the oil separates. Next, add in some NESTLÉ Greek Yogurt Natural, MAGGI® CukupRasa™, sugar, water and tamarind water. Let the mixture boil for 2 minutes before reducing the heat, then allow it to simmer for 3 minutes to release the wonderful flavours. Finally, add in the quail eggs and stir for a minute until all of them are coated with sambal sauce. Serve this yummy sambal while it’s hot with plain rice or Nasi Lemak!
