Thai Steamed Eggs Recipe
Eggs Steamed to give it a direct translation from Khwanjai’s original Thai recipe is a wonderful all round good guy in Thai cooking, it goes well with so many meals but also is suitable for vegetarians and great if you’re dieting to boot!
Think of making scrambled egg, poached, crossed with Soufflé and Junket and you’re getting close, it dissolves in your mouth, great if you have no teeth!
It is light and savoury flavour with the freshness of the delicately aromatic veggies used in the making of this lovely eggs recipe, on top of all that you can play around with the ingredients to suit your taste, see the video tutorial…
How to Make Steamed Eggs
Menu for 5 portions
2 1/2 Cups Water = 1/2 cup per egg
3 Shallots (medium size =1/2 cup)
2 Spring Onions (scallions)
5 Thai Chillies (optional)
1 ts Black Pepper – freshly ground
1/2 tbs Chicken Stock Powder (or 1/2 cube)
2 tbs Thai Seasoning Sauce
6 Celery or Coriander leaves sprigs
You will also need an egg poacher or better yet, a large vegetable steamer
Finely chop the Spring onions and shallots not so fine
Grind some fresh black pepper, about 1teaspoon
Beat the Eggs in a large bowl thoroughly
Then add the shallots, spring onions, pepper, seasoning sauce, chicken stock and juice of 1/3 Lime (optional chillies chopped or whole)
Mix together and add the water still stirring
Pour into steam proof bowls, and we’re ready to cook
Prime your steamer and get the water boiling before adding the eggs
Place the bowls of egg into the steamer (see photos above) bung the lid on and leave for 10 minutes before checking
If they have firmed up at the ten minute stage place a sprig of celery or coriander leaves on top of each and cook a further 2-3 minutes
Open the lid and smell…… Aaaah!
Serve with Jasmine rice or some salad if you’re on a diet but this dish is a great accompaniment to so many Thai recipes. Try our Pork Barbecue Ribs and Garlic or maybe something rich and spicy like Dry Chicken Red Curry (it’s not dry like the name implies, it means no oil or milk is used in cooking) or for something equally light and good for diets our Pork and Lettuce Soup
