Fried Eggs in Sweet & Sour Sauce ไข่ลูกเขย

  • 6 eggs (chicken or duck)
  • ¾ cup tamarind juice either prepare yourself or buy a commercial pack
  • ¼ cup palm sugar (coconut sugar will work as well)
  • ¼ cup fish sauce
  • Crispy fried shallots (recipe on site)
  • coriander leaves (for garnish)
  • ¼ cup of cooking oil

  1. If you don't have the fried shallots in store then it's best to prepare them now.
  2. Heat oil in a wok, and individually fry the eggs until crispy and the yolk cooked to your preference. Then put the fried eggs on a serving plate and set aside.
  3. Use the left over oil from eggs and onion. Add palm sugar, tamarind juice and fish sauce. You can taste and add more if you want. However, the original taste should be sweet and sour.
  4. Pour the tamarind sauce over fried eggs and sprinkle with the fried shallots. Before serving, garnish with fresh coriander leaves on top and serve immediately.
