How to make Egg Benedict with Rice Cooker

I'm sure you guys have seen me posting lots and lots of food pichas recently.

Yes, today I am going to share with you guys a rice cooker recipe 
for making my favourite Egg Benedict. 

As you know, I live in hostel and I can't cook recenlty due to restriction.
So don't get me wrong, these pichas is taken before the rules was enforced ;)

Before we start, 
I shall give you guys a rough mindset about what's the outcome.
I have only a rice cooker.
no fridge,
no cooking pan,
no other cooking utensil like microwave,
or oven.

So with limited source of food,
and also limited equipment
I try to do as much food as I can to fullfill my food desire.
I am a western food lover
and I always exploring food around the world.

So I tried to make egg Benedict one day cause I was craving for it.
And after several times of experiment,
I have got the recipes right.

So here you go, enjoy!

There are four steps we are going to do to make egg Benedict:
1) baked the bread
2) prepare the filling: bacon/ vege of your choice.
3) make hollandaise sauce.
4) make half -boiled egg
*make sure you follow the steps to avoid mess.*

Things you need (for two servings):
Three eggs,
two pieces of lettuce,
two pieces of tomatoes
and two pieces of edge-cutted bread (You can use any other bread)

We start with baking the bread:
Apply some margarine on the bread

and put the bread on the heated cooker.
*to prevent cooker to turn off the cooking state,
put a tissue or whatever to prevent the button to click off.

Flip the bread several times to make sure it cooked.
I like it a bit brown so here's it!

Now we gonna prepare the filling.
 I am doing a vege one so I make sure the tomatoes and lettuce piece is dried.
*Use a clean tissue to suck the water out.

Cut the lettuce to fit the size of the bread

Finished with filling,
we move on to Hollandaise sauce.
seperate one egg yolk from egg white.

Add some salt, pepper, sugar and squeeze just a little bit of lemon.

Then whisk the egg yolk.

while continue to whisk the egg, 
add the warmed margarine liquid into the bowl  little by little.
*Make sure that you whisk at the same time to make sure the margarine are blended into the barter.

Then just warm it at the warm water
*Don not put it at the boil water or hot water or else the egg will become scramble egg due to high temperature*

And then we can move on to the last step
The half-boiled egg.

The point is,
make the egg white cook but leave the egg yolk uncook.
and make the egg white cover the egg yolk as much as possible.

The secret of making it happen is to add some lemon (or any acidic liquid such as vinegar) and a little of salt to the boiled water.

And pour the egg from the bowl
*Do not pour it straight from the egg*

Drained the water from the egg by using towel tissue after you take it out.

Arrange the filling accordingly.

Place the egg on top.

Pot the Hollandaise sauce.

And there you go! :D

Leave a comment below if you have tried it, test it, 
or you need further explanation on making a great Egg Benedict! ;)

All right.
It's food post again.

This time, let's travel to Pavilion, KL.
Komugi Cafe is located at the Japanese Tokyo Street department at Level 6
where you can find all sort of Japanese cuisine and stuff to buy.

I specially went into Komugi Cafe under Daniel's recommendation.
First I was amazed by the coffee pictures posted by him 
So I started to ask him where can I get this fantastic coffee?
And so I came across with this shop one day and decided to give it a try.

To my surprise the crowd is....... HUGE.
So I am suppose this is not just a decent shop,
but it's a very famous restaurant in Pavilion.

Komugi cafe is a Japanese- culture-based shop
So all you see in the shop (except the stuffs) are basically designed according to Japan style.

Their menu is full with information. 
Just like a newspaper or magazine.
Unfortunately they are designed for the customers to take orders,
then the waiters will take it away.
It will definitely be better if they keep one on each table ;)

In Komugi you can find variety of breads.
And all of them look delicous!

Super many type of bread >.<

The lemon cheese cake I ordered.
It's pretty nice.
The texture is soft and musky,
and it's not too sweet.

The beautiful coffee art served.
We have ordered two cappuccino but they give us two different arts, 
which pleased me so much I can't afford to drink it :D

The Komugi's Udon Mee Soup.
I would say this is a bit too salty for me.
Plus I am not a Udon fans so I don't like this at all.
The soup is pretty decent but I believe this is how Japanese eat it.

Anyway, just a short review about it.
I think it's a good place for coffee and bread.
Definitely worth the price if you are coming of tea time. :)

Chicken Chop Pantai Timur, Kelantan

Yo Yo Yo!

I have been traveling back to Kelantan for the crazy new semester!
and I am thinking,
Why not posting some food review about good food in Kelantan?
So here you go!

Chicken Chop Pantai Timur!

basically, this is the most popular Chicken Chop Shop in Kelantan Area.
As what I have been told, 
This shops originated from a little stalls besides the road since 1989.
And the business went so well thus they are able to buy a shop lot and do their business there.

The environment is super nice.
It's just the simplest clean and cool surrounding.
Definitely a great place to shade from the heat outside :D

Their table is the menu. :)

The Wall is pasted with all the pictures taken by the boss with her clients. :)

I have been there once and these are the pictures taken after me and my gang finished our dance class.
Which is, frankly, a year ago ><

Their Best hit: Chicken Chop.

Bare in mind it's the classical Kelantan's Chicken Chop. 
So this is how they eat it.
Not the typical western chicken chop you found in other places.
The chicken is fried into a very nice state with a great crispy skin.
The meat is just at the right state of cook.
but I would say the sauce is a little too much.

If I am not mistaken, this is the green salad plate. 
Something like that. 
Good for those who are under diet plan, if you ask them to cut down the mayonnaise and wedges :P

Smoked chicken grill. Something like that. Can't recall the name.
But this is the best dish for me. 
With the right amount of sauce and the best grilled chicken,
I couldn't help but eat it all :P
*Plus lick it*

Happy Feast! ^^
