‘Ramly’ Style Burger
the ultimate whopper

Ramly Burger is a Malaysian company that specializes in meat patties. They usually come in frozen packs in the supermarket. Not far outside my house, there is a stall where nightclubbers frequent for a dirty burger after a night of drinking! They would always use the Ramly pattys but the famous ‘Ramly burger special’ come with beef patty wrapped in egg smothered in mayo and Maggi Sos Cili. It is one of the best burgers I must admit and most stalls in Malaysia would have their own versions. My brother and I often frequent this stall even if we haven’t been drinking! This is my version of a Ramly burger but I wanted to make it even dirtier so this is a whopper. Best avoid if you are on a diet!

Prep 20 minutes
Total 30 minutes
  1. Marinade the beef for at least 1 hour.  Divide into 4 round balls and flatten with your palm when ready to cook. These are quite thin patties to allow them to cook faster in the pan. 
  2. Heat butter in a frying pan. Cook two patties first. They need about 2 minutes each side. If you prefer well done then cook it for longer. Remove the first two onto a tray lined with kitchen paper. Pour some of the fat into a small pot then return the pan to the heat. Lightly beat one egg and pour onto the pan and spread thinly like you would do a pancake. When the egg starts to cook through, place one of the patties and wrap the egg around it. Remove and set aside. Repeat with the other patty.
  3. Pour some of the reserve fat onto the pan and fry the other two patties for 2 minutes each side. Place the cheese slices onto the cooked side and cook for 2 minutes. Leave it in the pan while you assemble the garnishes.
  4. Spread some mayo generously onto two sides of the bun, top with lettuce then the patty with eggs, spread more mayo and sos cili generously followed by the patty with cheese. Top with tomatoes and another piece of lettuce. Repeat with the other one. 
  5. Tuck in with plenty of napkins! 

I’m a home cook who was propelled into a ‘dream come true’ world of cooking after winning the coveted MasterChef trophy back in 2014.


My aim is to spread some love for Malaysian food in the UK, my home now for 20 years. MasterChef has allowed me to showcase some of the Malaysian flavours to a mass audience and now it is up to me and a few other chefs to champion this wonderful cuisine in the UK. I travel all over to promote Malaysian food and my debut cookbook, MALAYSIA, available to buy on Amazon or from your local bookshop.
