Striving for the perfect steamed egg

I’m conducting an experiment on one of my favorite dish I used to eat as a kid. My mom makes perfectly smooth steam egg with texture much like tau foo far. However, my first experiments result in a plate of steam egg which looks more like the moon…

My mother used to make the perfect steamed egg with a special topping made from mushroom, chicken and tomatoes. It's soooo delicious!

Though it won’t be long until I perfect the recipe (I measured the volume of the eggs, ratio of eggs to water, noted the temperature, etc). I’ll be reading on the history and science behind cooking eggs too (?!). Just wait, you’ll see the perfect steamed egg on JewelPie soon.
