Thai Curry Risotto with Sous Vide Egg – Delishar

A couple of weeks ago, I got to work with an electronic kitchen machine, the Bellini SuperCook Kitchen Master. I conveniently named her Belle. Belle was the sous chef in my very tiny kitchen. And she was an awesome help, not only because of the efficiency of her work, but also because she worked over-time for me without complaining. That freed up my time for me to do some very important stuff, shopping. On-line shopping for CNY clothing to be specific, and 2 dresses to be even more specific. 😛 So, thank you Belle. Without you, I’d be standing by the stove, sweating my behind off and working the arm muscles with the constant stirring of the risotto. 


Two weeks ago, I shared how I used the Bellini SuperCook to make Hainanese Chicken Rice. The machine allowed me to steam a whole chicken, collect the juices to make fragrant chicken rice. As mentioned before this affordable German engineered cooking machine that will be available in SG soon. Priced at almost half of what you will pay for competing brands. 

Hereis a quick look at the Specifications of the Bellini SuperCook:

  • 2 Liters Stainless Steel Jar
  • 13 functions including steaming, blending, kneading, pulverising and chopping
  • Cooking temperature: 40 ° – 130 °C, in 5 °C steps
  • 1000W heating for cooking, 500W for mixing
  • 10 speeds + turbo mixing functions
  • Libra Weighing scale
  • Standard accessories: Vapore steam trays, measuring cup, 
stainless steel knife (Sharp), 
stainless steel knife (Blunt),
stainless steel jar, cooking basket, whisk paddle, spatula, recipe book, Yumi App with SD card.
  • Yumi Control System with 36 installed recipes collection and access to over 3800 free online recipes that you can download and save on the system.
  • Wifi synchronisation between the Yumi Control System and SuperCook Yumi App on your mobile phone. Your phone would then guide you through the precise steps of cooking your favourite dish. You can either create your own recipes and upload them or you can download the free recipes and use them at your convenience

This time, I made a creamy risotto that packs a punch, then topped it with a 75C sous vide egg with lava yolk for the double oomph factor. When I first received the machine, and learned about the stirring blade, it struck me that I can make creamy risotto without any effort at all! So naturally, I started pairing ingredients in my head.

A lot of my cooking blog readers have requested for vegetarian recipes (yes, of course I heard you). So here’s one to add on to your cooking repertoire. Of course, the egg is up to your personal preference. I opted for an organic vegan curry paste in this recipe, but you can use whatever you fancy. 

The SuperCook did a wonderful job as you can see. From chopping to sautéing, and cooking the risotto perfectly! The risotto turned out al dente and absolutely creamy. Because I left it up to the machine to do the cooking & stirring, I have to admit that I was slightly worried that my risotto will turn out like congee, but it didn’t!

Let’s talk about the egg. Yes, I made it in the SuperCook as well. The cooking machine allows you to set and maintain a cooking temperature, and with that function I though why not try to see if I can sous vide something. And sous vide I did. It took a while for the water in the jar to get to the set temperature. I had to do a little trial and error, nothing too major. I used a kitchen thermometer to monitor the water temperature.

First time, I set the temperature to 75C, speed 2 and it took about 18 minutes to get the water up to temperature. Then the next time, I set it at 80C, speed 3 to get the water moving a little more. This time, only about 8-10 minutes to get the temperature up. I lowered the temperature to 75C, and popped the eggs in for 13 minutes. The eggs turned out AMAZING. The husband came home from work, and had 2 servings of the risotto. He commented that it was spicy but could not stop eating it. 2 hours after dinner, he went to the fridge and had another serving.

Bibimbap with Sous Vide Pork (Gluten-free, Low-carb) – Delishar

My husband loves bibimbap, and he has every reason to do so. If you follow my IG story, you’d recall that I made this Low-carb Paleo Bibimbap. With it, I also made sous vide pork shoulder marinated in Korean Spices. Served it with sides such as Oi Bokkeum (Stir-fried cucumbers) and the ever so gorgeous 62C egg.

Bibimbap looks quite similar to our ‘Cai Png’ or mixed vegetable rice which you can get from the local hawkers. The word Bibimbap literally means “mixed rice”. It is a bowl of warm white rice topped with Korean side dishes, sliced or minced meat, and an egg. It’s not rocket science to figure out how comforting and homely this meal can be. 

Typically, the side dishes lay on top of a bed of steamed rice. However, I served mine up with cauliflower rice instead. This reduces the carb count by many folds. Additionally, I skipped the sauce for my bowl, sprinkled a little chilli flake and used the lava yolk to dress my cauliflower rice. 

In the pork marinade, I used honey to make it refined sugar-free. You can also opt to make it with a touch of erythritol or omit altogether. In the recipe, you’ll find some suggestions for you that may suit your keto journey. Here are the highlight snippets of me cooking this meal.
