Egg Crepe Rice Parcel 蛋皮包饭 – Eat What Tonight


We are down to the last week of 2016 finally !! Looking back the year, it has indeed been a year of much escalations and trials. Though I won’t say things are as rosy as of now, but I am indeed looking forward to embracing the new year with much positivity.


And going into the last few days of this year, I am favourably blessed with Tefal’s Expertise range of cookware under its Titanium series. Wholly made in France, the non-stick innovation possess a very distinctive characteristic that’s really out to impress all home cooks. With an extra thick Titanium hard base and top coat as well, the Tefal Expertise Fry-pan also guarantees long standing durability and performance.


And you may ask, what’s so special about this series despite its outlook being pretty similar to its others series. Well, the signature iconic feature of it may well turn out to be its Thermo-Spot technology that turns red once the pan is heated to the perfect temperature ! Now you don’t need to guess how hot the pan is, or even placing your hand above it to test for the accuracy of heat before you start the pan frying. To test out this feature, I thought I shall prepare something that can well covered the entire pan, pretty delicate and yet not too complicated to begin with. And that’s an….. Egg Crepe !!


And to top it up, I would use the egg crepe to wrap up some SPAM fried rice as well. The challenge here lies in getting a fine and delicate and yet “strong” enough egg crepe to wrap and hold in the fried rice without it tearing. The tendency to overcook the egg crepe can be quite high as once that happens, it might be difficult to be used for wrapping as the texture will become firmer and break easily once folded.

So can you tell how the new Tefal’s Expertise pan works ? Before the pan is heated up till the ideal temperature, the little dots around the signature T was very much apparent and obvious. After the exact moment is attained, the dots are almost non visible and that’s where I added a bit of oil and start my egg crepe frying. And in all, it takes only slightly more than one minute to achieve a fine and perfectly golden yellow egg crepe.


Now who can resist these lovely looking egg crepe rice parcels that’s just so delicately presented !! And what’s more with all-time favourite SPAM fried rice, be it kids or adults, everyone will be tempted and requesting for more !! 


So gear up to prepare these egg crepe rice parcels with below recipe !! And wishing all a Happy New Year in advance too !! May the New Year brings much joy, peace and love to everyone !! Enjoy !!

How to Make an Egg Crepe Rice Parcel for a Bento Box

Previously I’ve made an egg crepe rice parcel that sits beautifully on a plate and you can find the link here. And this time, I am attempting to fit it into a bento or lunch box which is kind of more challenging than the formal due to the smaller and non-roundish shape of the bento box.

But the good news is, I managed it successfully without the egg crepe breaking ! Generally this method should be able to apply to any bento box size and of course, it will be made easier if the lunchbox is a roundish shape without all the right angles at the corners. And instead of filling up the entire box with the egg crepe parcel with rice, which will be too much of the rice for me, I actually did half the box size and filled the other half with miscellaneous finger food.

The whole idea here is to make an egg crepe that wraps up a good fried rice which I attempted with a Olive Oil Sardines Egg Fried Rice in an earlier post here. The egg crepe must be able to cover the rice entirely when packed into the bento box and it must not tear or break in the midst of wrapping. So this definitely needs some caution there and then. And to allow that to happen, a little corn flour solution is added to the eggs mixture to give it some extra elasticity.

And because I only wanted to fill half of the bento box with rice, which fortunately my bento box comes with a divider and so I conveniently use that for the same purpose. Below step by step illustrations should help you better understand how to get this going. Took me quite a fair bit of time to get it sorted out so hope you will find it useful too !

Have fun ! And do let me know if you manage to prep a similar bento using this method too !
