Innovating new dishes is the key to developing any food business. Remember how cassava chips went viral in Indonesia over the recent decade because of its spiciness? When it first rose to popularity, customers waited in line for hours just to buy a pack!
Since salted egg flavoured anything is the current food trend across Indonesia and Southeast Asia, salted egg could be the very ingredient you need to launch your next big dish. Here are some salted egg combinations that are sure to spark curiosity amongst your current and future customers alike.
1. Turn beans into delicious treats
If cooked alone, beans aren’t always a top pick at a restaurant. Add flour and salted egg to turn them into tasty, crunchy snacks your customers will love! Chef Chen Zhi Wen from Melben Seafood, Singapore, has proven that this combo works wonders.
2. Serve salted egg in a drink
It’s 2019, and it’s not weird to have salted egg in your tea or coffee. In fact, egg tea is increasingly popular in Sumatra. Adding salted egg to your drink menu could offer an exciting sensation that your customers might have never eggs-perienced before. Singapore’s got their salted egg bubble tea and Thailand’s got their salted egg lattes, so how about experimenting with a salted egg sekoteng for an Indonesian?
3. Replace cheese with salted egg
Like salted egg, cheese is known and loved for its strong, savoury flavour. It can also be used in a large variety of food like burgers and pasta. Why not try modifying cheese-based recipes with a salted egg base instead? If you’re lucky, your dish could go viral on social media!
4. Turn sweet into salted
Give your customers that unexpected flavour twist. This works especially well with dishes that look normal on the outside, but the salted egg is revealed in just one bite. Surprise them with salted egg in their cakes, dumplings and many more!
