Steamed egg is another comforting and delicious dish that I love to cook. It’s simple and quick to prepare, and most of time I have all the ingredients needed. When I have stock (usually from soup leftover), I will happily use it in lieu of water. I however use water most of the time and it always tastes as good.

Sometimes when I’m more carefully and patient, I’ll make sure that the mixture have no bubble in the surface to create that silky smooth egg custard. To achieve a smooth surface and minimize the bubbles;

  1. Stir egg using chopsticks using cutting movement.
  2. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve will minimize bubbles.
  3. If there are still some bubbles left, use the back of a spoon to flatten it.
  4. Cover and seal the dish when steaming so no evaporating droplets will fall and cause bubbles.


Now, you can see that mine isn’t looking smooth and pretty. You can clearly see that I was tight with time and feeling hungry already… and my rice is cooked. Let’s eat!
