- 1 tbsp mayonnaise (1汤匙奶黄酱)
- 1-2 tbsp homemade Sambal belachan （1-2汤匙自制三巴峇拉煎辣椒酱）
- 1 tsp fish sauce (1茶匙鱼露)
- ½ tsp Paprika (1/2茶匙辣椒粉)

Ingredient for Sambal Balachan （自制三巴峇拉煎辣椒酱材料）
- 15 red chillies, deseeded （15个红辣椒，去籽）
- 8 dried chillies, deseed and soak in hot water （8个辣椒干，去籽，用热水浸泡）
- 5 shallots （5葱头）
- 3 cloves garlic （3瓣大蒜）50g belacan （50克峇拉煎）2-3 tbsp cooking oil （2-3汤匙油）2-3 tbsp palm sugar （2汤匙椰糖）
Step 1: Cook the hard boil egg （煮熟鸡蛋）
In a saucepan, heat 800ml water. Once the water boils, add in eggs. Cook for 10 mins. （在锅里，热800毫升的水。一旦水沸腾，加入鸡蛋。烹煮10分钟。）
Step 2: Make Sambal Balachan while waiting for the egg to be cooked （准备三巴峇拉煎辣椒酱）
In a heated pan without oil, breakup the belachan using the spatula and toast it for about 2 mins till aromatic.
In a pan with heated oil, add in shallots, garlic and stir-fry for about 2-3 mins. Add in red chillies and dried chillies. Stir-fry for another 2-3 mins. Transfer into a food processor and blend it finely.
Pour in belachan and sugar, mix well.
（在热锅中，使用炒菜铲将峇拉煎切碎。翻炒约2分钟至到释放香味。 在锅里热油，加入葱头，大蒜，炒约2-3分钟。加入红辣椒和干辣椒。再翻炒2-3分钟。熄火，把辣椒倒入多功能切碎机，搅拌均匀。 将峇拉煎和椰糖倒入辣椒酱里，混合均匀。）
Step 3: Egg is cooked, prepare the filling （鸡蛋煮熟，准备馅料）
Deshell and cut the eggs in half neatly. Scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Set aside the egg white.
In the mixing bowl, add in spring onion, mayonnaise, sambal belachan, paprika and fish sauce, mash thoroughly with a fork, mix well.
Step 4: Prepare to serve （上菜咯！）
Spoon the mixture into the whites. Garnish each egg with coriander leaves and sprinkle some paprika on top.
Arrange on a plate and serve immediately.
