Originating from Java, Indonesia, Tauhu Telor is humble food that’s meatless and packed with protein; tofu, eggs, sticky soy sauce are the main ingredients. The tofu omelette is usually fried in a tall stainless steel basket but you can make the omelette any shape you like with egg rings or a muffin pan. I found my frying basket at Daiso. The important stuff is the veggies and sticky sweet sauce.
This is a must-order at every Indonesian restaurant. Served as an appetizer but you’ll find yourself having to resist another serving or you won’t have room for the main course. And I wouldn’t blame you! It’s hard to resist!
