The Ramly Burger has been very famous in Malaysia for many years now and, unlikely I’m going to make it back to try the real thing, I decided to attempt to recreate it at home. Just the thought of this concoction was too tempting….

As far as I can gather, the selling points for this burger are

1) the meat, which should and could be spiced with any number of things, including worcester sauce or curry powder;
2) the condiments, which should be plenty – bbq sauce, black pepper sauce, mayonnaise
3) egg – the whole patty is wrapped in a thin egg omelette

The Method I followed was:

1) Cook burger
2) Cook egg
3) Add burger to egg in pan, top with condiments etc and fold
4) Insert into bun and eat

Areas of inauthenticity:

The authentic version has cabbage/ carrot etc. I used jalapenos and edam cheese (neither authentic in any burger theme)
I did not fry the burger or egg in margarine (just sunflower oil)
For bun, I used potato rolls as outlined in this post.

Cooking was actually pretty easy – just used one frying pan

One thing I’ll change next time (didn’t want to do another test right away as I was super full and these are way too yummy to waste) is I’ll make the egg bigger in relation to the burger as it was difficult to fold up. But not impossible….

It was really, really, really delicious…
