Nitamago aka Lava Egg
Ingredient (4 eggs)
  • 5 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 3 tablespoon Water
  • 3 tablespoon Mirin
  • 2 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Superior Dark Soy Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. Once sugar has melted, let the marinade cool completely.
  3. Place 4 lava eggs*  in a zip-loc bag and carefully pour the marinade into it.
  4. Carefully squeeze all the air in the zip-loc bag out (ie, no air pockets) so the eggs will be completely in marinade.
  5. Marinate overnight.
  6. To serve, drain eggs from marinade and cut into half.

Note : Bring a pot of water with a dash of salt, enough to submerge 4 eggs, to rolling boil. Turn down heat, gently place down 4 60gm cold eggs into the hot water, swirl lightly with a spoon. Cook on low heat for 7 mins. Remove from fire and plunge eggs into a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. Gently crack and peel the shells. 

  • 500gm cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar

  1. Place shredded cabbage and carrots in a large mixing bowl. Toss in salt and mix well. Set aside for 10mins.
  2. Squeeze away excess liquid and place the vegetable in another bowl. Add in chilli, sugar & white vinegar. Mix well.
  3. Transfer mixture into a clean glass container. Seal and chill for at least 2 hours for flavours to infuse.
