Lovely and oishi! ^_^ I was wondering if it is possible to use egg whites in substitution for the egg yolk mixture. Please let me know if you can 🙂

I’m a sucker for chawanmushi but didn’t know how to cook it. Now I’m doing it for lunch! Thanks gals!

Littlelamb86 says:

Why do you need to use the foil? Can i not use it?

corvusala says:

This is why the internet exists.

JapaneseCooking101 says:

Of course!

JapaneseCooking101 says:

Dashi is the most important ingredients for this dish, so you should not skip it. For sake and mirin, you can use one or the other, and if you don’t use mirin, you need to add a bit of sugar for sweetness. This is a very delicate flavor dish, so we highly recommend to follow our recipe to get the best result.

Angie Chay says:

Can I use rice cooker to steam while cooking the rice

kerri teo says:

Do we need to dilute the dashi stock with water? I tried this out with the recipe and the chawanmushi turned out too salty to eat .

Max Tull says:

Could I also add kamaboko fish cake as well?

TheJapaneseBubble says:

if you don’t have a steamer like me, you can just fill a baking tray with water and put the cups on the baking tray, and then “bake” in the oven. i did it several times and it worked very well 🙂
