Telur Balado (Chili Fried Eggs)

I don't remember exactly when this becomes my routine every Saturday. You know what?? I cook every Saturday for my family. It's like their habit to ask "what's your gonna cook tomorrow?". The same question pops up every Friday night where I usually stay until late and catch up with my little brother. Take my mom to the market every Saturday morning also has became my routine. Since it becomes my routine I was too busy preparing and cooking, very seldom it crosses my mind to take pictures for this blog. I am the type who does things slow and neat, that's why no time to take pictures *hihihi* Everytime I have to rush to finish.

I cooked this dish weeks ago and already had the second round last week *hahaha* I finally realized that preparing a meal for the family is not as easy as you thought. It can be a headache just thinking what to cook the next morning, although I am only a part-timer, the Saturday Chef *hahaha* It's my new title :p The Indonesian called this dish "Telur Balado", meaning... Chili Fried Eggs (I guess this describes it *hehehe*).
