Hot soup would be nice for cold night dinner. Chawanmushi (Japanese Savoury Custard Soup) would be perfect! ‘Chawanmushi’ means ‘steamed in a tea cup’ and it is quite easy to make. Here is my family’s home style Chawanmushi recipe. If you don’t have Dashi Stock, why don’t you use Vegetable Stock or Chicken Stock? Use whatever ingredients you have. Just remember that you need to make Clear Soup to mix with Eggs. The ratio of the volume of Soup to Eggs is 2.5 to 1.
