Notes

In Step 3: Covering the dish tightly with aluminum foil before cooking is a MUST!! The steamed eggs will turn out firm and crumbly if you don't wrap it with aluminum foil.
It's important to taste & adjust the sauce according to your preference as different bottles of soy sauce or fish sauce (even for the same brand) have different level of saltiness. This will effect the taste of the final dish.
