Chicken boxing/lollypop with salted egg cream sauce.
Salted eggs are also know as TELUR ASIN in Indonesia, and are found in most south Asian countries. We can say pickled eggs.
Usually Duck eggs are soaked in brine for about 15 days ,sometimes the eggs are covered with a damp charcoal paste. But mostly they are soaked in brine. The salt thus penetrates the shell to give a salty flavour to the eggs, the whites have a gelatinous texture, while the yolks normally get a rich umami flavour. Once out of the brine,
, they need to be boiled or steamed. When using the eggs, they just need to be cut in the middle, and the egg scooped out.
Todays recipe uses the yolks of the eggs, to give us a delicious creamy sauce.
Do try this out if you can.
Salted eggs are also sometimes made with normal brown hen eggs.
These egg yolks have a rich umami flavour and taste amazing.

For boxing chicken aka chicken lollypop.
About 10 chicken wings, the ends discarded, cut into 2 at the joint, , here I have used only the front drumettes. Give a cut the bottom of the drumette and pull back the meat and form sort of a ball. .( pictures in comments)
Grind 4 cloves garlic, and a little ginger with salt and pepper to taste., add a squirt of lime juice., mix this paste with one egg and whisk. Tip in the chicken, after few mins remove chicken from egg mixture, shake off excess, and roll in corn flour. Deep fry.
Serve these wings with salted egg sauce.
☆.you can also serve this sauce with small pieces of fried chicken. Or even french fries
☆Salted egg chips are really trending now.
Have shared some pictures in comment section.
☆.. to those who cannot find salted eggs easily,,please do try with normal boiled egg yolks.
☆ using cornflour to dust the chicken makes it crispy as there will be no formation of gluten.
