" SUI DAN " / Steam egg

Most of the chinese family would have this dish called "sui dan" (in cantonese) in their home-cooking menu. Besides its' countless nutrients, it is also one of the easiest one to cook! Furthermore, it is also the most recommendable dish for today's busy mumy especially those with young toddlers!
My mom too like to cook this once in a while when there are only spicy dishes on the table & nothing suitable for my boys. But usually, my mom would do it the "sam wong dan" way:

"chicken eggs + salted eggs + century eggs + water + salt/soya sauce + pepper"

But yesterday, as we watched a "Travel & Food" show hosted by the HK famous "Choy Lan", we came across another interested way of doing the "sui dan". That idea immediately attracted my lou kung & he instantly promised to do it today!
Early in the morning, we went to Putri Mart, a nearby market for our breakfast & shopped for all the necessities for our cookings!

Here's the outcome of the imitated 'sui dan'.........which was well received for the smooth, sweet & juicy texture !!!















If you or your kids also love it, give it a try!!

Updated recipe (sorry no measurement) :

steam the "la-la"/clams

scaterred the cooked clams + crab stick + sausages on the plate

beat 4-5 eggs with water + pepper + salt/soya sauce

pour the eggs mixture onto the plate to steam until cook

Happy Cooking!!

But Jacss you left a lot of space and did not tell the uninitiated how to cook it! Century egg yes I have met often, mainly in Hong Kong, salted eggs are available here, poached eggs is a western way of cooking them and are good for children etc, the end results look similar to yours, or they can be cooked in the shell but not hard boiled and eaten straight from the shell in an egg cup.

First time here.
So, you watch this Choy Lan show. I'm in Hong Kong and I think they will have another season of this show sometime next year.
By the way, I can never do the steam egg dish properly. It never turns out smooth!!
