Chicken Arroz Caldo with Salted Egg
Chicken Arroz Caldo with Salted Egg. I have been always thinking of salted egg on my Lugaw every time I have an Arroz Caldo or Lugaw meal. Today I have a change to try one, Chicken Arroz Caldo with Salted Egg. Egg in toppings on a Lugaw or Porridge is not extraordinary. We Pinoy always have it in our lugaw in place of the meat ingredients, some Chinese porridge are topped with salted egg or even use century egg.

Arroz Caldo with Salted Egg

Chicken Arroz Caldo with Salted Egg, is of course better that using regular boiled egg. Obviously salted eggs are already salty which complements with the boiled rice, salted eggs have a nuttier texture compared to the regular egg.
