Charwan Mushi (individual egg custards)

Many of us are familiar with sweet custards, like flans.  Charwan mushi is a simple savory custard that makes a great breakfast or elegant addition to dinner.  These custards are steamed, not boiled, giving them a soft, smooth texture.  You can vary this dish by using other vegetables like sauteed asparagus tips, or try adding a little piece cooked chicken or shrimp.

Instructions
Charwan Mushi
  1. Heat the oils in a skillet on low, saute mushrooms and carrots for 2 minutes.  Season lightly with salt and pepper. Divide the vegetables between 4 small ramekins or bowls. Beat eggs with tamari and mirin, then divide equally among the ramekins. Garnish with a few sprigs of chives. Place ramekins into a steamer basket set over boiling water and steam for 10-15.  Custards should be soft and just 'set', not overly firm. Serve hot or warm.
Veggie Custards
  1. Heat the oil in a skillet on low, saute the vegetables until bright, and slightly softened.  Season lightly with salt and pepper. Divide the vegetables between 4 small ramekins or bowls. Beat eggs with salsa then divide equally among the ramekins. Place ramekins into a steamer basket set over boiling water and steam for 10-15.  Custards should be soft and just 'set', not overly firm. Serve hot or warm.
  2. Don't have a steamer basket set? Fill a large pan 1/4 full with water. Place two small cups upside down in the water.  In another pan that fits within the larger one, place the custard filled ramekins. Place this pan on top of the cups in the larger pan, being careful to make sure it is balanced and stable. Cover and cook as directed.
