Ingredients:

300ml water
3 eggs

Seasoning

½ tsp salt
1/8 ground white pepper

Garnish

1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp fried garlic with oil
Spring onions (chopped)




Steps:
  1. Crack three eggs into a large bowl. Lightly beat eggs and slowly add in water. Do not beat it too hard as air may develop in the egg.
  2. Add seasonings and mix well.
  3. Strain egg mixture with a sieve into a shallow bowl and cover with heatproof cling wrap or aluminium foil. Ensure there are no bubbles before steaming as we want a smooth and silky surface.
  4. Place the bowl on to a steamer rack and steam over low heat for 10 mins or until its set.
