Telur Ceplok Mentega (Fried Eggs in Buttery Sweet Soy Sauce)

When you need to quickly whip up a meal and all you have in the fridge are some eggs, you can do no worse than preparing some Indonesian telur ceplok mentega (fried eggs in buttery sweet soy sauce).

Telur ceplok is basically sunny side up, with telur is Indonesian for egg and ceplok means drop.

This cooking term comes from the fact that an egg is cracked and dropped on a frying pan, exactly what you do when making a sunny side up. And the mentega (butter) stands for buttery sauce cooked with kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce), onion, and garlic.

Saus Mentega (Buttery Sweet Soy Sauce)

As long as I can remember, saus mentega comes with fried chicken (Indonesian: ayam goreng). Most Indonesian children will probably rank ayam goreng saus mentega as their favorite food.

So it is no wonder that over time, the sauce part in the original fried chicken dish is adapted with quick and easy to prepare sunny side ups. If you are omnivores, you may want to give the original ayam goreng mentega a try :)
