Silky smooth steamed egg

After all the binging during Chinese New Year, I thought I’d share with you this easy peasy recipe that has been sitting for the longest time in my drafts folder. This simple dish will go well with the whole family, both young and old as it’s soft, silky and hardly needs any chewing.

And the best part about it is that it needs so few ingredients too. As long as you have some spare stock lying in the house (home made or store-bought), eggs and whatever condiments you usually use, this can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes.

Just to show you how wondrously silky the steamed egg is:


It’s almost like tau huay texture as you can see. 🙂

    Hi will it work if i do not use the cling wrap? Is it safe?

      As Long as the wrap doesn’t touch the food it should be safe. Without the wrap, the egg may not turn out to be so smooth but you can try. It shouldn’t affect the taste much.
