I saw this type of steamed dish quite often on China's sites.There are many variations, some serve it with sharkfins, some in superior broth, and some with noodles. It is actually called "Steamed 3 Silk", or 扣三丝
After lining the base of the bowl with the "silk" They just stuffed extra silk (egg, hams, mushrooms or whatver) into the bowl cavity to steam. Instead I used tofu as the filling. And I used egg as the tofu's binder.
Sigh, the egg might be a wrong decision, as you can see, the egg has covered up most of the "flower".
Anyway, I quite like this dish.
1 egg, fried into a thin ommelete
240gm pressed tofu (firm tofu)
½ tsp salt
Dash of pepper
