Sempoi Egg & Red Lentil Curry (Parpu Telur)

This is my family's favorite especially to be eaten with roti canai / pratha / dhosai or rice. My mama have been making it this way since I can remember :).

(estimated for 4 people)

1/3 cup red lentils / split peas
1/3 cup water
1 medium brown onion, cut into 6
2-3 gralic, sliced
1/2-inch ginger, sliced
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed, coarsely ground
1-2 teaspoons meat curry powder
5-6 curry leaves
4 eggs
1/3 cup coconut cream / milk
1 shallot, sliced

- boil lentils / peas till soft
- add onion, garlic, ginger, fennel & curry powder, bring to boil
- add curry leaves
- add eggs one at a time & boil till eggs cooked
- reduce heat, add coconut cream / milk & stir till well combined
- simmer for about 3-4 minutes
- add salt to taste
- meanwhile, fry sliced shallots in a small saucepan till brown
- sprinkle fried shallots on top of curry before serving

Happy trying ... :)
