  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan and just cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat; once the water reaches a rolling boil cook for another 6 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove eggs. Plunge immediately into a bowl of ice-cold water or run under cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel and refrigerate

  4. Arrange potatoes, green beans, tofu, sprouts, cucumber, red cabbage and radish onto a large platter. Drizzle over some of the peanut sauce and serve the remaining in a bowl
  5. Garnish with chopped peanuts and serve with lime wedges and prawn crackers
Tips & Hints:
  • Kecap Manis is an Indonesian sweet soy available in the Asian aisle of your supermarket. If not available, substitute with 2 tbsp soy sauce and 2 tsp sugar.
  • Sambal Oelek is a Southeast Asian chilli sauce also readily available in the Asian section of your supermarket. Omit completely or substitute with any chilli sauce, or ½ tsp ground chilli.
  • Peanut sauce will keep in your fridge in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Use on fried eggs or with chicken skewers or as a dipping sauce.
  • Warm peanut butter and coconut cream over low heat to prevent it from splitting.
  • Should sauce thicken too much, add a few tbsp water to thin out.
  • Peanut sauce, eggs, potatoes and beans can be prepped the day before.
