How To Make Kuih Pie Tee/Top Hat Shells

This is Nyonya Kuih Pie Tee or also known as Top Hats. It's an appetizer made with a savory, crispy thin fried shell, filled with stir-fry yam bean (jicama) and carrot. 


In this video, I'll show you how make the shell with and without the brim. You'll also need a special Pie Tee mold, and If you can't get hold of it, then try the Scandinavian Rosette & Timbale mold. The latter mold is different, but it does serve the same purpose.

How to cook Soft/Hard-Boiled Eggs With Rice Cooker

I am sure that you are aware that rice cookers can cook more than just rice. If your rice cooker has a steam function, this could be a great method that you can use to make soft or hard-boiled eggs. The countdown of the rice cooker starts after the water comes to a boil. In my case, I used cold tap water, large eggs straight from the fridge, and it took about seven and a half minutes for the water to start boiling. Then the timers will start and all you have to do is stop the steaming process and remove the eggs depending on the type of doneness you like. Anyway, in this video, I have shown four different results of cooked egg, from 7-10 minutes. This method has never failed us. However, the result may vary from different brand of rice cooker, water temperature, and the size of eggs. Nevertheless, do give this method a go!
