3 small teacups water
1 teacup Japanese soy sauce
1 tsp sugar

2 prawns, cut up
2 cooked bamboo shoots in thin, wide slices – preferably cut lengthwise
1 oz | 28g mushrooms
1 small Japanese peixe tabua, sliced
orange cut into 1″ pieces
chicken fillet (optional)

Beat 6 whole eggs for 2 minutes, add cold water, soy sauce and sugar and stir well.

Soak the mushrooms in a little hot water, discard the stems, and then cut in half if desired.

Put a little of each of these ingredients into each chawan no mushi bowl, then put the egg mixture in each, stir lightly and steam for a few minutes till set and serve.

Chicken fillet cut in pieces is delicious if added to the above.
