Spiced Boiled Eggs

Spiced Boiled Eggs are often served with many other dishes such as noodles, rice and even Khau Yuk. Some eat it alone as a snack. It takes about 2 days to make this great boiled eggs, so, I usually will make like 10-20 at one go and you can always keep them in a fridge for later use. The eggs are boiled in spices and dark soy sauce and hence the color of the eggs turn to dark brown.

What you will need:
  • 10 Chicken eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp whole white pepper
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 4 star anise
  • 1 tsp of fennel seeds
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 whole nutmegs
  • ½ cup of rock sugar
  1. Boil the eggs as you would normally make hard-boiled eggs. Let them cool and then peel
  2. Bring another pot of water with the rest of the spices to boil. Put in the eggs and turn of heat. Cover with lid and let them soak in the pot for 2 hours
  3. Bring the pot back to boil again and turn off the heat and let stand again for 2 hours
  4. Repeat this process (step 1 to 3) several times throughout the day for 2 days
It seems like lots of work, however, this method really makes great Tea Eggs and it worths the effort :)
