    How to prepare dried bird nest for cooking

    1 whole nest is sufficient to prepare 4 rice/dessert bowls of thick bird nest soup as illustrated in the recipe below.


    Soak dried nests in a bowl of clear tap water for at least 4 hours.


    Once softened, strained from bowl and are ready for cooking.


    Strands can be loosened individually if preferred finer and smoother texture.


    Step 1: Pandan flavoured soup

    Boil a small pot of water using approximately 4 rice bowls of water. This portion is for thick soup using 2 whole nests, use more water if diluted soup is preferred. Generally, use 2 rice bowls of water for 1 whole bird nest.


    Add in pandan leaves and boil for about 3 minutes until water turn light green and the aroma of pandan fragrance comes out.


    Remove pandan leaves.

    Step 2: Double Boil softened dried bird nests in soup

    Place the softened dried bird nests into the pandan soup.


    Double boil for about 15 to 20 minutes for best chewy, jelly soft texture. Avoid boiling too long as nests would become too soft.


    Add desired amount of crystal rock sugar to taste.

    Step 3: Serve your soup

    Based on the above portions of bird nests and water, this pot of warm cooked soup can serve 4 rice/dessert bowls of thick bird nest soup.

    Tips on cooking and consuming bird nests
     

    Tip 1: For fast and best results, use a double boiler for cooking bird nest soup.

     

    Tip 2: Bird nests are best consumed at night (between 10pm to 11pm) before bedtime, or early in the morning on an empty stomach as these are the optimum periods when the body readily repairs itself or absorb nutrients.

    Tip 3: Anti-aging effects and smooth youthful looking skin come with long term regular consumption of bird nests. Consume about 50ml on a daily basis. A single piece of bird nest ($30) can be used to cook a small pot of 500ml soup. 50ml of soup is only $3! That’s $3 a day!

     

    Tip 4: Although bird nest soup are best consumed when freshly cooked, it can be stored in closed containers in fridge for up to 10 days, and consumed over a period.
