  4. Boil the chicken breast in salted water until tender then hand peel into thin strips.
  5. Julienne the cucumber skin and carrot into 3mm thick, massage with salt then a quick fry on high heat with a bit of oil until colour turns vibrant.
  6. Trim roots of bean sprout and cook in salted boiling water for about 10 mins. Rinse with cold water then squeeze out excess liquid. Toss with sesame oil and salt to taste.
  7. For the eggs, separate the yolks from the whites. Add 1tsp of water into the yolks and 1tsp of oil into the whites. Whisk and fry separately with a bit of oil on a low heat, cut into 6cm segments then julienne.
  8. For the sauce, mix the hot english mustard with water, vinegar and sugar. Add salt to taste.
  9. All the ingredients should be cut into the same length and width if possible. Plate all of the ingredients evenly on a platter and sprinkle a small amount of roasted sesame seed on each of them. Serve with a small bowl of pine nuts and sauce.
