Sambal Tumis Telur Puyuh

Sambal Tumis is the most versatile dish I know........You can cook it with quail eggs, ikan bilis, chicken eggs, squid, prawns, chicken, beef or anything actually. You add lemongrass & galangal...and it's suddenly called Terutup! Remove the sugar and it's Asam Pedas! A truly magical dish using very few ingredients. You can have it with white rice, Nasi Lemak......dip bread or cream crackers in it....everything goes with the Sambal Tumis!
