Fuyunghai

fuyunghaismall.jpg

original recipe by: sedap sekejap, modified by me.

I had about 26 eggs in my kitchen =), before I made this dish. No, there was no sale on eggs in the nearest grocery stores. It was just me stocking up on flour, sugar, and eggs. Just in case, I have a sudden urge to bake a cake. Life as a graduate student is pretty unpredictable you know. Sometimes when you are so stuck with what you are trying to do, you just want to do something else to release the tension. Releasing tension for me means cooking and eating. Yes, the latter may have a greater factor than the former.

So I have all these wonderful chicken eggs in my kitchen. So I decided to make a chinese dish called fuyunghai. I am pretty sure it has been severely modified by the Indonesian, leaving us a perfect example of fusion cookint at its best.

Enjoy!
