2 Jan 11 (Sun) - Steamed Milk Custard (炖奶)

Wasn't happy about the failed steamed milk custard (炖奶) yesterday and decided to give it one last shot today before the weekend is over.

Refined some steps and even added an extra step hoping to make it perfect. My hard work didn't go to waste, I finally got it right! Put it in the fridge after it cooled down and ate it after my lunch. So refreshing and satisfying on a hot day.

Steamed Milk Custard (炖奶)

1 egg white
140ml milk
1/2 tbsp sugar

1.  Warm the milk in the microwave but do not boil it
2.  Whisk the egg white in a separate bowl
3.  Add the egg white and sugar to the warm milk and mix well
4.  Strain the mixture to another bowl
5.  Cover the bowl with foil
6.  Steam it for 12mins in a pot with a lid on using medium-high heat
7.  Lift the lid up a bit to release some steam every 4mins
8.  Off the heat after 12mins and leave it in the pot for another 3mins
9.  Serve hot or chilled
