Okay, i don't proclaim to be the world best cook but i think i do okay sometimes. I may not be enthusiastic about cooking all the time (i prefer baking) but i love trying new dishes. Growing up i was always watching 'Maggi menu kitchen' and was writing recipes in my cookery book. Did i ever try the dishes? Noooooo. One day my brother said  'you always write the recipes but never make them' As i grew older i feel in love with baking, i rarely remembered to try new dishes except when i am taught by my aunty (i think some of my adventurous cooking spirit is from my grandma and aunty).

Lately i have started getting inspired to try new dishes and one of the recent dishes i tried was 'steamed eggs'. I got this recipe from I actually thought i might not get it the first time (sometimes i have to repeat a dish to get it right) but i was pleasantly surprised that i got it right on the first try. I loved the way the dish came out and i have repeated it again. I had to stop myself from always making steamed eggs anything i want to eat eggs.

Here is the recipe gotten from Be sure to check out the blog for more yummy recipes...

How to make Steamed Eggs

A plate of steamed egg

If you are tired of eating boiled eggs, and you don't wan go close to fried eggs, then this post will put a smile on your face cos you will have the opportunity to eat eggs.

Last Christmas, I made this for the family, and everyone loved it. When I was preparing it, my sis was like "which one is steamed egg again", I winked and kept sealed lips, then she added, "will one egg be sufficient for each person?" I'm like wait and see. When I was done, she kept "wowing" lol.

Steamed eggs fall between boiled and fried eggs. I call them steamed eggs cos they are cooked via steaming just like moimoi (bean pudding).

Eggs are a rich source of protein. Egg whites contain about half the protein while the rest are contained in the yolk. Egg whites are rich in riboflavin and selenium which are useful in energy production and elimination of toxins. The yolk contains some vitamins such as A, B12, D, E, K, minerals like calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc. Egg yolk is wonderful for brain development, it improves your memory and cognitive skills.

-1 Egg
- Pepper
- Onion
- Seasoning (optional)
- Salt to taste

1. In a bowl, break the egg, add chopped pepper and onions, seasoning & salt, then whisk together.

2. Get a small transparent bowl (with a lid), grease it very lightly with vegetable oil or butter. Pour in the egg mix (from 1 above) into this bowl.

3. Pour a cup of water into a pot, bring to boil. Place the bowl containing the egg in the pot and cover the pot. Allow to cook for 6-8minutes.

 Turn off heat, your steamed egg is ready to be" munched". You can eat it alone or with noodles or bread.

It's perfect for breakfast, kids will love it.
