36th Main: Ramly Burger, a remake of 19 Nov 2019 (Tue).
Had 3 extra burger buns from recent burger dish. To finish off the buns I decided to prepare Ramly Burger with its unique burger patty wrapped with fried egg. Nyonya Cooking Ramly Burger is still the best burger dish yet.

This burger is amazing! I have the lack of ingredient for vegetables, but just the meat is perfect! Would recommend it to friends and family
Thanks for posting in FB yesterday I totally miss Ramly burger. That's our take on Ramly burger.

These burgers are usually known as ‘Ramly Burger’ (assuming that Mr. Ramly came up with it) and are sold in almost all the neighbourhoods in Malaysia as it is a successful franchise chain. Strategically situated at corners of the streets near schools or along the main roads, these stalls are easy to identify. You would be amazed of the never-ending queue waiting to purchase these succulent and lips-smacking burgers. While each stall may differs in its presentation of the burgers, the core structure and ingredients remain.

Ramly burger patties

If you are in Malaysia, Ramly burger patties can be bought in the supermarkets. However, in this recipe, we are using homemade patties. You may replace minced chicken with minced beef.

Black pepper sauce

Black pepper sauce is usually added to burger ramly. You may either buy it at Asian grocers or have it homemade. Making black pepper sauce requires a combination of butter, milk, oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce and corn starch. See how it is done here.

Maggi seasoning

One ingredient which I skipped in this recipe is the Maggi seasoning sauce as it was not available. It is usually drizzled on the patties as they cook. It has the consistency and flavour very similar to soy sauce. You can either substitute it with soy sauce or skip it, as I have done.

Here is my take on the Malaysian street burger a.k.a. Ramly burger. It is a joy to watch the burger sellers performing little stunts as they flip the burgers or crack the eggs. Most of all, I enjoy sinking my teeth into these burgers with the juice oozing from them and dripping onto my fingers. Every bite is pure bliss!

I think what’s the recipe is missing here is the Maggie Seasoning Sauce. It’s a must sauce to make a Ramly Malaysia Burger taste right. Try it 😋

How true! The pak cik at the burger stall will always add a few drops of Maggi seasoning sauce. I didn't have that in hand, hence it is not listed. But it still turned out yummy :)
