Everyone has their own favorite food one's got from childhood. It may be something weird or embarrassing that people never guess. I am telling you mine. Besides Indomie goreng (fried noodle), salted egg with hot rice, sweet soy sauce and chili paste is my favorite food. Yummm...
Since salted egg is rather expensive here in my city, I often make it myself. Most likely I am impatient to find out if the egg is salty and oily, so I try boiling some of them. That's why I like to make it when I am busy, so I forget about it. This time, I really forgot about my eggs. I checked the note attached to the egg container after my finals were done. It had been 5 weeks since I salted them. No wonder the eggs are super salty
Ingredients: Chicken eggs
Soak egg in cooking wine then cover generously with salt. Store in airtight container for 3 weeks.
I still don't know the secret of making the eggs orange and oily. Some of mine are orangish but not oily, or orangish and oily, but some are pale yellow *sigh. However it is still salted egg, and it still is my favorite
