Irresistible Tobiko Chawanmushi In CasaBento Box (とびこの茶碗蒸し)

Are you a fan of the popular Japanese Steamed Egg? This is one dish I can never refrain from ordering when dining in Japanese restaurants. Have you tried Chawanmushi (茶碗蒸し) with Tobiko (とびこ)?

The orangey-red roes are often found in Sushi. The mild smoky salty taste adds zest the steamed egg & I swear you're gonna love the crunchy bits coupled with the smooth egg texture. Try it & it’ll leave you craving for more!

Wanna #CookForFamily? I'm joining Daniel’s Food Diary to be part of the 100 bloggers for the awesome event. Check out my meal @ Singapore Bloggers Unite To #CookForFamily!

A meal doesn't need to be complicated. I'm sure a simple Bento Lunch Box like this makes a difference, so let's make an effort to cook for our family this weekend!

I know a lot of you are screaming for this recipe after my 1st post on these cute bento box & food. My apology for the long wait. Let's get cooking!
chawanmushi, tobiko, japanese, eggs, tips
Tip: Using egg shells instead of cups to measure water is best since the sizes of eggs vary & I like to use the ratio of 1:2. Temperature control is important too. Using high heat will result in bubbles & eggs being too hard.

Ingredients:
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Tobiko
  • ½ Shitake Mushroom (sliced)
  • 1 Surimi Crab Stick
  • 1 Ginkgo Nut
  • 4 x Half egg shells of Chicken Broth or Dashi
  • Pinch of Salt


Method:
  1. Beat egg with salt & broth. Strain.
  2. straining eggs for chawanmushi
  3. Placed ingredients in steaming cup.
  4. ingredients for chawanmushi, steamed eggs
  5. Pour egg mixture into cup. Cover with cling wrap & steam till custard is set, about 7 mins, depending on your steamer & container.

  7. Use a cocktail stick to check if egg is ready.
  8. how to achieve smooth egg texture
  9. Top with Tobiko & serve your silky steamed egg hot.

Do you prefer to have Chinese-style instead? Try this Silky Steamed 3-Egg With Wolfberries (蒸三皇蛋), using a different ratio cooking the eggs. Enjoy!

  8. Shirley, that teddy bear sandwich is too cute! But what appeals to me (especially since it's breakfast time here, ha!) is the "silky egg" paired with those treasures in the bottom -- it must be absolutely wonderful.
