Bento Mania #74 – Hello Kitty

Post dated bento consist of individually packed rice + chicken floss . Dishes is fried egg (using egg white for the face, cincau jelly for the eyes and whiskers *haha!*, egg yolk for the nose and carrot as the ribbon), blanched broccoli and cauliflower and pan fried salmon slices.

This is how I prepare the rice:

Filled onigiri mould with rice and make a well at the centre. Position chicken floss in the well before closing them with more rice. You can mix rice vinegar to your cooked rice or just leave them plain.

Place your rice ball on the centre of plastic wrap and wrap them up.

As for the pan fried salmon slices:

Cut salmon in slices. Marinate them with teriyaki sauce, dash of pepper, honey and dark soy sauce. Melt a little butter on non-stick pan and fried them. Make sure you do not overcook the salmon.

As for the Hello Kitty egg:

Separate egg white and yolk. Fried them separately. The rest is all cut out from the Hello Kitty cookie cutter.  I really respect those amateur bento blogger. How did they find time to do all those cutesy bento? I took near to 1 hour to prepare this bento. I think this is the first and last time I EVER use the cookie cutter for bento’ing. Really  so much work!

    Your bento looks too good to it. But to spend 1 hour for a bento, wow, takes quite a bit of passion.

    The Queen says: Hi KK, I have not heard of any of the cooking class or workshop held in KL. Maybe you can buy some recipe book? Bento market is a bit slow in Malaysia. I’m sure they will catch up. If you have any question in doubt, please let me know. Will try to help if I can.

    yum yum. those hello kitty plastic wraps are cute 🙂

    i was wondering why everyone mentioned about you being lenglui until i looked at the anti-spam quiz…muahahahahahaaha

    The queen says: Hakakaka! Initially, I wanted to put, “Jessieling is a Female or Male?” Then I wants something more wacky so I replaced it with Lenglui and Lengchai. Didn’t know it’s going to be a joke to us. lol.

    Wei leng lui~

    I strongly agree with you about doing cutesy bento all the time…. too time consuming! hahaha That’s why I never open up a lot of my new gadgets…. all still nicely sitting in the wrappers! And I used a few of them for my cupcakes! hahahahahaa

    Haha…was wondering what all the lengchai and lenglui discussion was all about. Your bentos look really nice by itself, no need to use cutter also can.
