Steamed Tri-colour eggs aka Sam Wong Dan ~ 蒸三皇蛋


This simple, homey egg dish surprisingly is very often listed under 'egg dishes'  on the menu of many Chinese restaurants.  It may appear to be a very easy peasy dish with only eggs, water and salt but then to be able to achieve a silky smooth texture custard do require some fine tuning.   After two attempts I deduced that attention must be given to the amount of water added to get the correct consistency, heat and timing for steaming.






Silky smooth egg to go with a hot bowl of rice !


Steamed Tri-colour eggs aka Sam Wong Dan ~  蒸三皇蛋

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken egg
  • 1 salted egg
  • 1 century egg
  • Boiled and cooled water (ratio 1 : 1.5)
  • Sesame oil & chopped spring onions to garnish
**  Total volume of eggs is 100 ml so, I added in 150 ml water

Method
  1. Break up the chicken egg, add the salted egg white and beat well.
  2. Break up the raw salted egg yolk.
  3. Peel and cut up the  century egg.
  4. Add boiled and cooled water into the egg mixture, whisk.
  5. Mix in the salted egg bits and century egg.
  6. Pour onto a dish and scoop out the foam.
  7. Once water in the steamer is boiling rapidly, put in the dish, cover and lower the heat to the minimum.
  8. Steam for 14 to 15 mins. and occasionally lift up the lid to peep at the progress after 5 mins., then every 3 mins.
  9. Lightly jiggle the plate and if the centre is wobbly, then it is done.
  10. Turn off heat and remove the plate of eggs.
  11. Garnish with the chopped spring onions with a dash of sesame oil and pepper.
  12. Serve immediately.

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
