Ingredients Processing

 - Chop the scallions, shallot, carrot and chillis up into small pieces.


Step 1:

Step 2:

- Boil 4 eggs in 5 minutes. (*Note: when boiling the eggs, you should wait for the water to boil, then put them in pot. This will help the eggs to be not cracked when boiling.

- After boiling, put the eggs into a bowl of cold water and soak them in 5 minutes, then peel shells.

Step 3:

- Roll 4 eggs over a layer of the wheat flour.

 - Then surround the eggs with a layer of the ground basa fish as the image below.

Step 4:

- Next crack two remaining eggs in a separate bowl, and the crispy flour and bread crumbs also put them in two separate bowls.

- Then dip the basa fish blocks into the ingredients in the order of the crispy flour eggs and bread crumbs to make a crisp layer for the dish.
