Ingredients Needed to Make this Recipe

  1. Eggs: Your eggs are going to need to be peeled after boiling, which can oftentimes cause a problem if you are using very fresh eggs. Eggs that are a bit older peel easier than fresh eggs. Make sure to use 1 week old eggs instead of farm fresh for this recipe.
  2. Chilis: You can use whatever type of chili you want. I used serrano pepper, but you can use thai chilis, indonesian chilis, or anything else you want to experiment with.
  3. Thai Basil: Thai basil is different than regular basil. Thai basil almost tastes like anise seeds, and can be found in your normal grocery store or an Asian grocery store. Read more about the difference between Thai Basil and Basil.

How to Make this Recipe

Step 1: Hard Boil the Eggs

Fill a pot with enough water to cover your eggs. Put the pot on the stove and bring to a rolling boil.

Once the water comes to a boil, remove the pot from the heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. Once hard boiled, run the eggs under cold water and remove the shells.

Stick the skewers about ¾ of the way through each egg, lengthwise.

Step 2: Fry the Eggs

Heat the sunflower oil in a large pot. The oil should be hot enough that it begins to bubble within 3-5 seconds of coming in contact with the egg.

Once the oil is hot enough, place the eggs in the oil and allow to fry until the outside of the eggs turn brown.

Step 3: Make the Sauce

Expert Tips

Fried eggs with chili sauce
  • This is a great way to use up old hard boiled eggs. If you do not want to cook new hard boiled eggs, you can always use any leftovers you may have.
  • To test the temperature of the oil, you can also use a chopstick! Place the chopstick into the pan and press the chopstick perpendicular against the bottom of the pan. If the oil starts to bubble around the chopstick within 3-5 seconds, your oil is hot enough to use.
  • You can use bell peppers to omit the spiciness of the sauce if you’d like
