Pinch of salt
In a pan, add milk, sugar, salt, chilli powder and salted egg yolk and stir fry for a couple of minutes.
Blend the ingredients in a blender until the mixture turned smooth but not too runny.
Set aside to cool before cooking.
In the meantime, coat the prawns with some cornflour and deep fry until the prawns are cooked.

Minced Pork Steamed with Eggs
A comfort food, simple to prepare and goes well with a hot bowl of porridge.
8 tablespoons minced pork
3 beaten chicken eggs
3- 4 tablespoons lukewarm water
1 tablespoon Superior Light Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon White Sesame Oil
Dash of grounded white pepper
Marinate the minced pork with the seasoning.
In a mixing bowl, add the marinated minced pork and the beaten eggs.
Add the lukewarm, stir and mix well all the ingredients.
The addition of water will make the minced meat absorbs more moisture and expand to a lighter texture and the steamed egg softer.
Brush some cooking oil on the base of the metal plate to prevent the mixture from sticking.
Pour mixture into the oiled metal plate and steam covered over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
To test whether the dish is cooked, simple insert a chopstick into the thickest part of the mixture. If the chopstick come out clean, the egg mixture is cooked.
Cut into thicker pieces and served immediately.

My achievement of a fluffy, light egg white with and egg yolk lava in one serving?
(Separate the yolks from the whites making sure not to break the yolk)
Some sea salt to taste
Place the whites in a container for whisking.
Add some sea salt to taste.
Whisk the egg white until it reached the stiff peak stage.
I used an electric whisk for speed. The end result of the whisking is to make sure even when you turn the container upside down the white egg mixture will not slide out.
In a frying pan, add a little oil to grease the surface and spoon the egg white and arrange in a circle, leaving a hole in the middle for the egg yolk.
Carefully drop the egg yolk in the centre of the circle.
Over low heat, cook until the base of the egg white is firm and movable.
Transfer to the baking tray.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place in the oven.
Bake for around 7 to 10 minutes or until the yolk is firm to your likeness.
When done, transfer to a serving plate.
Add white grounded pepper and black soy sauce for more flavours.
With this method I was able to achieve a firm base with egg yolk lava and fluffy egg white.
Take a closer look at the inner portion of the egg white, fluffy like cotton.
For this recipe, I used one and a half of the whisked egg white and one yolk per serving.
