Mom used to make this dish all the time when we were little. It's fast. And it's cheap to make. Sometimes, she would fry the eggs. Other times, she would serve it with hard boiled eggs. The fried potatoes are optional. I guess she include that to make it more filling.
When I first got married, I would make this dish a few times from the dozens of Habhal sweet soy sauce I had brought over from Singapore. Unfortunately, the bottles of Habhal goodness were long gone.. and much to my dismay, I couldn't find it at my local Asian grocery stores. And oh, I have yet to find the ABC brand either. Bummer.
Anyway, I have finally found a recipe that I'm satisfied with. It's close enough.
4 eggs, fried with a bit of vegetable oil 1 potato, peeled and sliced into strips - fry until golden brown
1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 small onion, cut into rings
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce (Tamari sauce) 2 tablespoons honey (adjust sweetness) 1 teaspoon sambal oelek (more if you like spicier..I usually put around 2 teaspoons)
Garnish: 1 spring onion (scallions) - sliced thinly
Mix the soy sauce, honey and sambal oelek. Fry the onions till it gets soft. Add the minced garlic and fry about 30 seconds longer. Then add the soy sauce mixture and fry a minute longer. Add fried eggs and the fried potatoes and garnish with the spring onions.
