Steamed Egg ala Apples and Dumplings

This is the second time I made this. The first time, I put too much stuff in it. It was good but the BOS said it has too many stuff, he wants more egg. I cooked this last Friday during the vacation.

This is a very easy recipe. A no-fail recipe for non-cooks like me! My mom used to cook this for us when we were single pa. She puts more stuff in it but I have limited ingredients, it's still good!

Steamed Egg ala Apples and Dumplings(or Chawan Mushi)

What you need:
4 pcs Medium Eggs, beaten (this will yield about 1 cup of eggs or more)
1 cup Water (egg and water should be of equal parts, adjust accordingly)
3 pcs Crab sticks, chopped
1/3 cup dried mushrooms (I used about 5 to 6 pcs of mushrooms)
1/4 cup spring onions (optional)

- Wash the dried mushrooms and soak them in water until soft (this will take about 30 minutes or so)
- Set aside the water from the mushroom.
- Chopped mushroom into bits or dice them.
- In a glass bowl or stainless bowl, mix beaten eggs, mushroom, crab sticks, and spring onions (optional).
- Measure mushroom water, add water if needed to have equal parts with the eggs. Add mushroom water to the mixture.
- Steam for about 20 to 30 minutes. When water is boiling, don't cover the pot entirely. I poke the egg to check if it's cooked already LOL.

That's it! This can serve 3 to 4, but if you're matakaw like us (me and BOS), it was enough for the both us lang. Haha..

  1. My "ama" (Chinese term for lola) used to cook this for us. Will definitely try it out tonight. I miss this. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I've always wondered how she did it.
