Savory Steamed Egg Custard

Savory steamed egg custard is among the simplest food to make, and I count this as one of the best comfort food :) This tastes so subtle and the addition of nutty sesame oil and crunchy freshly sliced scallions is just perfect with the silky smooth custard, especially when it is still piping hot straight out from the steamer, so… good. ♥
