Steamed Egg With Kadok Herbs

See my smooth and silky steamed egg? Aha, after failing few times to get a good result, I still not giving up, but to get a secret from my mama. Needless to say, the outcome of smooth and silky texture will definitely taste better than rough surface steam egg. ;P

The other day, my colleague passed me some kadok leaves which she plucked from the river side near her house. Instead of using it to cook perut ikan or make some otak-otak, I carried out a series of experiments to discover new recipes. Steamed egg with Kadok herbs is one of them. If you like the smell of the Kadok herbs, you'll like this version of steamed egg.

1. 6 of Kadok leaves
2. 2 Omega eggs
3. Some water

1. 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
2. dashed of pepper

1. Wash the Kadok leaves and get it thinly sliced.
2. Beat eggs in a porcelain bowl. Add estimated amount of water, light soy sauce, dash of pepper and the Kadok leaves. Mixed well.
3. Steam under low heat for 10 minutes.

This sounds interesting. You might want to ass in a bit of sesame oil to bring out the taste. Moreover, I did not see you garnish it with a bit of chopped garlic oil. It goes well with steamed egg.

One secret to share with you. To get great steamed egg, the water used should be the same as the quantity of eggs you are using. Eg. If you are using two eggs, then 2 egg shells of water it should be. Steam it under low fire.

Criz Lai, with Kadok leaves itself, it able to bring out the "otak-otak" smell, so nothing is used for garnishing. I doubt whether garlic oil will match the herb smell.
I never measure the ammount of water to be added, just based on my experience. :)

Only thing is I always fail when it comes to steaming of eggs. It is either under steamed or over steamed :( Can never get it right. Thanx for such simple and easy dish...:)
