Playing and experimenting with food is fun. Whether rain or shine,it’s always a great idea to be creative with food and keep yourself, the kids and everyone around happy. Today I’m going with such a fun dish-‘Bird’s nest’- which is really easy to make, tasty to eat, and of course fun to look at. 🙂
(Makes 4 nests)
Rice Vermicelli 100 gms
Onion 1 (small sliced,fried)
Green chili 1 (chopped)/red chili powder 1/2 tsp
Soya sauce 1tsp
oil to fry
Boil 2 eggs and keep aside. Beat the third egg and keep the raw beaten egg aside.
In a deep vessel of water. Add salt (aggressively) and vermicelli to it. Cover and keep aside for 8- 10 minutes till the vermicelli is soft. Drain the vermicelli and add vinegar, soya sauce, chili and the beaten raw egg into it. Mix well.
Divide the vermicelli mixture into two equal portions.
Make a ball with each portion. Place one portion on your palm and then using your hands try to shape it like a bowl to stuff with the boiled egg.
Now completely cover this egg with the vermicelli by applying pressure.
Heat oil in a wok and deep fry this egg stuffed ball till golden.
- Do not cook the vermicelli.
- Put salt in the water as the salt will be evenly absorbed and it will increase the taste.
You can cut it in two parts and plate as you like. Your bird’s nest is ready.
This is probably the simplest recipe I have given so far so I hope even those of you who are not yet well acquainted with the kitchen can amaze everyone using this recipe. Hope you enjoy the nest. I look forward to reading your comments and feedback. Happy Blogging! 🙂
