Chawanmushi 茶碗蒸し

Bought some fishcakes from the market~
they are so cute, and cost 20 cents per slice.
Got to clear them b4 I start my strict diet for 14 days...

I made Chawanmushi... =)
We love~~!
Piggies again!
and I think these 2 piggies looked really similar!

the pink pandan~ HEHE..looking kind of sad...

forever friends!

The egg was smooth and soft..just like silken tofu~

So how did I make it?
My recipe is very simple as there's no sake or mirin involved. I don't need it to be extremely flavourful..
Just feel that hon-dashi granules are enough to make the chawanmushi yummy!

I bet this will be a popular steamed dish in your family!


Chawanmushi (Serves 3)

2 large eggs
310ml of hon-dashi stock (Use 1 TBSP of hot water to dissolve hondashi granules, after it's dissolved mix into the remaining water)
Shimeji mushrooms
1 inch chicken fillets

1. Beat the eggs.
2. Combine hon-dashi stock and eggs. Mix.
3. Place chicken into bowls/cups.
4. Sieve mixture into individual bowls/cups, cover with aluminum foil.
5.Steam on low heat for 6 minutes, for decorative purposes, 
top chawanmushi with fishcakes and shimeji mushrooms carefully.
6. Steam further for 6 minutes.
7. Serve hot.
