    I just had to try this recipe!<br/>I don't know why but I just had to give this recipe a go, and I am so glad I did!!!! These eggs look so fantastic!<br/>I made as written ohhhh...except for the guava leaf, I did not have any, but followed everything else as written.<br/>They turned out so amazing, much to my suprise, and taste wonderful. I served with salad & your Micronesian Coconut Chicken Curry recipe.<br/>They looked so spectacular on the plate with the salad.<br/>Thanks awalde, such a wonderful yet different recipe.

    These were fantastic! I was worried they wouldn't turn out, but they were perfect! I used the lemongrass instead of ginger, and I used the red onion peel. I didn't use the guava leaves as they are unavailable here. The kids were very impressed with them, and want me to make them again with food dye tomorrow! My sister suggested the food dye ones would look great in summer salads. Thankyou for sharing this fantastic recipe! [Made for PRMR]
