Spicy Sour Fried Eggs with Udang Geragau (Dried Shrimps) Recipe

I missed the cincalok (fermented fresh shrimps) eggs that my late grandma used to cook. Since, I do not have any cincalok in stock, I just used udang geragau (dried shrimps) as replacement. Although the taste of this dish is way different from my grandma's cincalok eggs, it helps to remind me about all the nice food that she used to cook. LOL!

Ingredients
Onions, 1 pc, cut into slices
Udang geragau, 1/3 cup, soak in water
Lemon, 1 slice
Fresh chillies, 2 pcs, cut into slices (chilly padi, optional)
Light soya sauce to taste
Vegetable oil, enough to try the eggs
Eggs, 2 pcs, slightly beaten

Mix the soya sauce with eggs. Heat up wok, put in oil and saute the onions until fragrant. Add udang geragau and stir fry for a short while. Add in the chillies. Pour in the eggs mixture. Fry until eggs are cooked. Squeeze some lemon juice onto the Udang Geragau eggs before serving.

Yvonne : Udang geragau smaller than he-be. They use it to make belachan and cincaluk. When dried become very small and flat....1cm and flat like paper...lol!

elle Marie : Hi, Cili padi is bird eye chilly. Small in size but very spicy.

Sonia : Udang geragau is small shrimps. Used to make belachan
