Gulai Lemak Telur Masin (Salted Egg in Green Coconut Broth)

 I had lunch at my  good friend's house few weeks ago whereby she invited her friend (Kak Nor) to cook this special dish. This dish typically using fresh duck eggs (and my mum's cook this deliciously) but you will never find duck eggs in Miri hence she substituted it with salted eggs and it turned out fabulous...! However, make sure the salted eggs are not too salty and the mild type will be great.

I tried making it again and managed to buy some salted eggs from the Pasar Malam (night market) which are imported from KL. It is more expensive (90cent each) but I was told that they are less salty which turned out to be true. My whole family enjoyed this dish very much.... My youngest son asked me why I called it salted egg because he said it is not salty at all. I guess the salt must be absorbed into the gravy. The big difference is the egg yolks which is a lot tastier than the fresh eggs...! For those who never tried this, it will be a new discovery for you....
