Salted Egg Yolk Chicken



















I was inspired to cook this dish after reading Wendy 's blog  Table For 2 or more  :) she is the pregnant one but looks like I am the one with a sudden craving  :p  I have some chicken breast meat left so it was a good idea to use them for this dish. I used what I have in the fridge. I have 2 salted duck eggs  left in the fridge so I used up the 2 salted egg for this awesome and tasty restaurant dish. The curry leaves are a plenty in the garden ...flourishing well becoz it has been pouring heavily lately. I don't have evaporated milk so I substituted it with non dairy cream and it turned out delish just the same .











I find using potato flour for coating
is better than using tapioca flour...
the crisp-ness can last longer 

 















for me I like it with a garlicky fragrant so I added in some garlic
though Wendy's recipe did not call for garlic :p



















I don't know why I can't make the salted egg yolks fluffy
like she described but just the same it tasted good too



















I added a dollop of non dairy cream in place of evaporated milk
then add in the crispy fried chicken cubes and stir fry
till it is coated with the salted egg yolks mixture



















Jo loves this dish and I will make this
again later in the week :) love the tasteof salted egg yolk and the
garlic blended together yumm yumm ....
awwww inhale slowly and you
will get the kick from the aromatic curry leaves
..... I bet after reading thru'  you will crave for this too :p




















Salted Egg Yolk Chicken ( taken from Wendy )


(A)

350gm boneless whole chicken leg, cut into 1 inch thick large slices * I used chicken breast- diced
1/3 tsp salt
pepper
1 egg white
1 cup tapioca starch * I used potato flour

oil for deep frying * I used 1 cup grapeseed oil


Dry chicken properly. Mix chicken with salt and pepper. Then put in egg white. Marinate for half an hour, at least. Coat whole pieces of chicken with tapioca starch. Dust off extra starch.

Deep fry chicken pieces until golden and crispy.


(B)
2 Tbsp butter
2 sprigs curry leaves, remove from stem, leaves only
1 or 2 bird’s eye chilli, sliced
3 salted egg yolks, steamed and mashed * I used 2 salted egg yolks
2 Tbsp evaporated milk * I used non diary cream
1 tsp grapeseed oil
1/3 tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
* I added 3 pips of chopped garlic

In wok, on medium heat , put in oil, garlic and butter. When butter has melted, put in sliced chilli and curry leaves. When they are fragrant, put in mashed egg yolks, with spatula, try to flatten the yolks into the oil and cook until it look bubbly and fragrant (won’t take long). Turn heat to low and put in milk, salt and sugar. Turn heat to high and and cook until very bubbly. Put in chicken and toss until well coated.



Bon appétit

  4. Looks like restaurant's - so professional. I wouldn't bother to pre-fry my chicken pieces - not healthy and if not eaten immediately, not so nice.

  15. Elin,
    When I fry the egg yolks hoh, it looks like when one fries dried shrimp, the mixture will bubble up like fresh cola from the can. When I saw chefs cooking on TV, it was the same too. Maybe our heat is higher. I'm not sure.
    I think you version with cream will be nicer, but the one I saw on TV is evap milk, hehehe, so I just followed suit lor.

    Have a nice weekend!

  16. Natasha....I am sure your hubby and daugher will love it :)


    Wendy....thanks for sharing the recipe with me. Your recipe taste just as good even though the egg yolks didn't fluff out when stir frying them. I use non -dairy cream becoz I don't have the evaporated milk at home and surprisingly it turned out just as good. Really, the next time you make this dish try using some non-dairy cream. :)

  21. I laughed when you said the recipe didn't call for garlic but you added it anyway lol. I'm just the same! I LOVE the garlic flavour. And even if the recipe calls for garlic, I'll always add more than what they say. I don't eat much salted egg but my sister will go CRAZY over this. She only likes the salted yolks haha. I should make this for her :)
