• Egg yolks- 6
• Milk- 2 cups
• Vanilla extract- quarter teaspoon
• Sugar- half-cup (not powdered)
• Ground nutmeg- half teaspoon
• Whipped cream- 1 cup
• Cinnamon and salt- just for flavor
Make a light and fluffy by mixing yolks and sugar. Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients except vanilla in a medium-sized pan and cook at medium-high heat. Take just a spoonful of the mix and add to the fluffy eggs and whisk again. Keep repeating until the half of milk is added and then put the egg and milk mixture on the stove. Cook until it thickens and adds vanilla. Enjoy chilled!
Chinese Millennium Eggs
Guessing is easy by its name but No, they aren’t 100 years old. This popular Chinese recipe gets ready within weeks or months and can be prepared not just with chicken eggs, duck and quail eggs are also preferable ingredients for it.
However, its cooking process is a bit unique and weird too. It seems no less a chemical reaction as eggs are dipped in a solution of chemicals like sodium carbonate. That is why the eggs get a dark green appearance and taste alkaline. Traditionally, eggs were preserved in salt, quicklime, clay, ash, and rice hulls for weeks.

Cambodian Grilled Eggs
Though the name and ingredients used to prepare grilled eggs are simple, the process of cooking is a bit tedious and requires experience. The curious chefs can try, here are the instructions:
- Fish sauce – 1tbsp for 12 grilled eggs
- Brown sugar- 1 tbsp
- Pepper- quarter teaspoon
Make a hole in the egg carefully using a large needle. This needs practice and precision as the hole should be large enough to empty the yolk. Take out the yolks, chefs do it in style by pushing the yolk out of the shell in just one blow. Can you do that?
The next step is preparing the steamer. Add sugar and sauce to the yolks, a little bit of pepper, and salt for taste. Pour the mix into the shells and steam the eggs for 20 minutes. Turn off the streamer once yolks mix starts popping out. Refrigerate for a night and grilled them the next day by pricking a skewer inside the shells. Peel them and enjoy hot.
