Bird Nest - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A bird nest is a deep fried nest typically made of noodles or shredded vegetables. The noodles or vegetables are placed in the bottom of a bird nest basket and then a smaller bird nest basket is placed on top of the food and pressed down to flatten the food to form a shape of a basket. The basket of food is then deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. When the food is removed from the basket it is in the shape of a basket. The bird nest is then filled with other ingredients, such as cooked eggs, meat, poultry or vegetables. The nests are generally fried just before serving so that they are still warm and do not become oily.
