Steam 3 colour eggs

All of us in the family like eggs.  Half-boiled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, steam eggs, fry eggs, no matter how the eggs are cooked, we al just like eggs.  Whenever we eat out in restaurant, we have to order eggs too especially steam 3 colours eggs.  WE like the way they steam the eggs, the texture is soft and smooth and taste good.  Today I am going to share the way one of the chef gave me tips of the way to steam this 3 colours eggs.

The ingredients are very simple as follow,

1 normal egg,
1 century egg,
1 salted egg,
1 cup of water, sesame oil.

We can easily buy salted and century eggs from the egg seller in the market.  Century egg is a preserved egg while salted egg is preserved in salt water, very salty to eat by itself.  Salted egg is usually covered with a layer of black sawdust. 

Wash and clean off the sawdust of the salted egg.  Crack the salted egg in a aluminium plate.  Dice salted egg yolk.

Add the water and regular egg, beat lightly.

Dice century egg.  then add into the salted egg and regular egg mixture.

Steam in high heat with close lid but just allowing a little gap.  You can do so by putting a wooden ladle on the steamer before the lid.  Steam for 7 to 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the sesame oil on top of the eggs before serving.  Smell good and taste good.
