Fusion deviled eggs.

FUSION  DEVILED EGGS

A very easy simple recipe, which I just happened to see on a instagram reel.
Saw and liked the concept. Ingredients were not mentioned, but sort of guessed. And the outcome was pretty good.  A good chinese twist to our simple hard boiled eggs. Here I have not used the egg yolks. Used them  for another recipe, and gave some to my pet african grey  parrot who enjoys eating eggs.  I have used minced chicken to fill up the hard boiled shells. Do try this simple side dish…

5 eggs boiled, peeled and halved.
( we will not use the yolks)
To enable the halved eggs to sit without wobbling, I took off a silver from the bottom.

To make the filling
125 gms finely chopped underside of chicken breast.
1 red chilie.. chopped
1 spring onion…use only the white part
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
1 tbsp chopped corriander leaves
1 tbsp chopped garlic
Salt to taste
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp ajinomoto…optional.
1 egg white..lightly beaten.
Put all the above in a food processor and blitz till mixed well.

Make 10 ball with wet hands..

Put each ball into the boiled egg shells and put in a slightly greased frying pan.

Pour over the sauce, cover and cook for 10 mins. Done.
Serve hot or cold.

Sauce..
1 tbsp chillie oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp vinegar
1 sprig minced curry leaves.
1 tbsp finely minced garlic
1 tsp sugar.
1 spring onion..finely minced.
1 tbsp chillie sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce.
1 tbsp chopped corriander leaves
1 green chillie..cut into thin rings
1 red chillie cut into thin rings
A pinch of salt.

In a bowl, add..chillie oil,  vinegar, chillie sauce, soy sauce,  garlic, sugar, salt,  spring onion, corriander leaves, green and red chillies….mix well. Pour hot sesame oil on top, and 1/4 cup hot water. Mix.

Heat sesame oil, plus 1 tbsp normal oil in a small tadka pan..add minced curry leaves.. and pour into the bowl  with rest of ingredients.

Capcai ( chaap chai)

CAPCHAI
Pronounced.. chaap chai.

This is a simple stew, which we eat regularly at home. Especially when we have been eating out a lot. A very simple healthy non spicy dish which is really tasty.
Have it accompanied with egg fried rice to make a one dish meal. A very forgiving dish, which makes use of a lot of vegetables…( good way to clear out your fridge.ūüėä)
You can make it vegetarian, or add chicken, or prawns.  Just make sure to cut the vegetables at a slant. So they can cook evenly and fast.

3 options to have this dish.
1.. Poured over fried rice.
2.. Poured over a mix of boiled noodles and deep fried boiled noodles.( also called IFUMIE) similar to chopsuey.
3. Poured over fried or steamed wontons( including a picture in comments.)

Just make sure its made on a high flame. And try to make  it near serving time, so the vegetables look fresh and not limp. Vegetables  should have a crunch..

1 carrot..peeled, sliced at a slant .
1 potato , peeled , quartered and sliced  at a slant.
4 baby corn, sliced at a slant.
1/2 cup of broccoli flowerlettes .. soaked in salted water.
1/2 cup pakchoi or mustard greens roughly chopped.
10 snappeas…baby sweetpeas whole.
1 big dry shitake mushroom ( boil in water untill soft).. then sliced.( retain about 1 cup of the water)
1 onion cut into big cubes
1 bell pepper..green or red or yellow, cut into big cubes.
1/2 cup quartered mushrooms( fresh or tinned)
1/2 cup chinese cabbage roughly chopped.
OPTIONAL…I ADDED SILKEN TOFU.
2 to 3 tbsps vegetarian oyster sauce.
2 tbsps sesame oil
1 tsp white pepper powder
Salt to taste.
1 tsp mushroom seasoning or MSG.
About 2 heaped tbsps cornflour mixed with some water to make a slurry..use as required.

To be ground to a paste..
3 seedless red chillies
6 garlic pods
1 inch piece of ginger.

Heat 2 tbsps oil in a pan and add the paste. Saute till fragrant and add the white pepper and salt.
Now add carrots, potato, corn, mushrooms and mix. ( IF ADDING CHICKEN , ADD NOW, BONELESS CUBED )

Add  3 cups of HOT WATER.( including reserved water from shitake mushrooms)
Let the vegetables boil for about 5 mins, and add the oyster sauce, sesame oil, msg.
Now add onions, bell pepper, snap peas, chinese cabbage , pok choi, and broccoli.

Bring to a rolling boil for few mins only. 
Now add enough cornflour slurry to thicken the stew. Check seasoning and serve immediately.
