Scrambled Eggs with Cabbage (Orak Arik Telur)

Cabbage with Egg

I was introduced to Orak Arik Wortel, which is scrambled egg with carrots and cabbage during our Rijstaffel gourmet club event. I thought this is a very tasty and easy-to-make dish for everyday dinner. I have made this a few times, but never took time to capture it on the blog. Hopefully, my girls will find this post handy next year when they have to fix dinner for themselves in the apartments. There is alternative to plain fried eggs!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4


  • 3 cups shredded cabbage (alternatively, mix 2 cups cabbage with one cup carrots)
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1 Tbsp oil for stir frying
  • Spring Onions or Cilantro for garnish (optional)


  1. Beat eggs with salt and pepper, set aside.
  2. Heat oil in work over medium high heat.
