Easy Peasy Steamed Eggs

One of the easiest egg dishes around .

Okay besides sunny side up , boiled eggs and scrambled eggs ^-^ .

Got this recipe from one of the Chinese magazine but can't remember the name -_-


Beat 2 large eggs , (at room temperature) in a shallow bowl/dish and season with a pinch of salt . Pour 180 ml lukewarm water to the beaten eggs and mix thoroughly . Use a wire/plastic strainer to strain the mixture (for a smooth , velvety texture) . Pour the mixture in a lightly oiled plate . Cover with plastic wrap/foil or plate . Steam for 10 to 15 minutes . Be sure to put a chopstick or a stick at the edge between the pan and the cover ( to let some of the steam escape thus preventing the top of the egg mixture to puff  up while the middle is still uncooked ) . Sprinkle some diced spring onion at the top and a drizzle of light soy sauce . Serve hot .

You can also add some sliced century egg and salted eggs to the mixture before steaming .

  8. hi anne, the steamed eggs look so smooth. I did this many times, well it was not wrinkled but not as smooth as in your pictures. This is like tau foo fah! But i did not put a gap between the steamer, i just open it like every 7-8 minutes for the steam to escape. Thanks for the tips!
