My boyfriend grew up as an expat in Indonesia and passed along this recipe to me. The fried egg on top with a runny yolk really makes it special. This recipe is very modifiable with what vegetables you want to put in, only the sauces, onions, garlic and chili are essential to the taste! For twice the amount, doubling all the portions works just fine! Enjoy!
