Salted Egg Chicken

I can't believe I can actually cook this dish!! Salted egg chicken is usually found in either restaurant or Zi Char stall.  I enjoy the savoury taste of salted egg.  The dish looks difficult to prepare but on the contrary, it is not. 


1)  300 g chicken ( cut into bite size)
2)  1/2 tsp salt
3)  1/2 tsp sugar
4)  some pepper
5)  1 egg (beaten)
6)  some cornflour / tapioca flour

Salted egg sauce

1)  2 chilli padi (cut)
2)  some curry leaves
3)  4 salted egg yolks
4)  1 tsp minced garlic
5)  1 tsp minced ginger
6)  1 tbsp butter

1)  Marinate chicken with salt, sugar and pepper.  Coat each piece of chicken in beaten egg, followed by flour.  Deep fry until golden brown and set a side.

2.  Steam salted egg yolks for about 10 minutes.  Mashed egg yolks.

3.  Melt butter in a heated pan.  Add cut chilli padi and curry leaves.  Fry till fragrant.  Add mashed egg yolks, garlic and ginger.  Cook until egg yolks turn foamy. 

4.  Add chicken and mix well.
