Ramly burger has always been my favourite go-to late night meal! You’re hungry and it’s 12am? Ramly burger is the answer. Trying to save money but you’re tired of instant noodles? Ramly burger. Don’t know what to get for dinner? Ramly burger! Not only it’s cheap and incredibly satisfying, you can practically get it anywhere in Malaysia! Where there’s a 7-Eleven store, there’s a Ramly burger stall. You don’t even need to find a 7-Eleven store, sometimes they’re just there! Now that I live abroad, I don’t have the luxury of convenience when it comes to food, especially Malaysian food.
Ramly Burger (Malaysian Street Burger)
- 300 grams ground beef/chicken, 20/80 fat-lean ratio
- White pepper
- Maggi seasoning , important
- 4 eggs
- 4 burger buns
- Cabbage, shredded
- Cucumber, sliced
- Sweet chili sauce, (see note 1)
- Black pepper sauce
- Onion, sliced
Shape the ground meat into 4 equal patties and set them on wax paper.
Heat up a frying pan and brush with melted butter/margerine. Meanwhile, season one side of the patties with some salt, white pepper and Maggi seasoning.
Set it up on the frying pan (seasoned side down) and fry for 5-7 minutes. Season the top side with more salt, white pepper and Maggi seasoning before flipping. Flip ONLY once.
Once flipped, fry for another 4-5 minutes and set aside.
Crack an egg in a bowl and lightly break the yolk with a fork. Refrain from whisking or vigorously mixing.
Turn the heat to medium-low and melt some butter/margerine on the pan. Pour the egg and quickly spread it out before it sets. Tilt the pan to help the omelette spread. The thinner and more spread out it is, the easier it is to wrap your patties in.
Put one patty in the centre of the egg, wrap it and flip it. Take it off the pan and set aside. Repeat with the remaining eggs and patties.
Meanwhile, separate your burger buns and spread some butter/margerine. Brown it on the pan.
Assembling the Burger
Bottom bun → mayonnaise → shredded cabbage → 2-3 slices of cucumber → burger → sweet chili sauce → black pepper sauce → sliced onion → top bun
- The sweet chili sauce used in Ramly Burger is not the Thai kind. It's sweet, extremely mild and as thick as ketchup. This is normally harder to find outside of Malaysia. Some that can be spotted in the Asian groceries in Stockholm are the ABC Hot & Sweet Chili Sauce and Yeo's Sweet Chili Sauce. My favourite is from the brand Kimball but sadly you can only get it in Malaysia.
