Let me see if I've got this straight. You put rice and chili in a thin plastic "egg". cover it with more rice and then deep-fry it? With the plastic egg inside? Surely not. It would melt at deep-frying temperature. So maybe you're just using the egg for a mold.

I've never heard of such a thing, but maybe somebody out there has. Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to for chili and rice, especially when it's so good just out of a bowl.
