Ideas And Tips:

You can also use vegetable broth, dashi stock, beef broth or anchovy broth.

You can use 1 tsp chili powder instead of fresh chili.

For the vegetables, you can also use bell pepper, kale, onion, spinach, zucchini, mushroom, corn kernels or peas.

If you want to make the steamed eggs hearty, you can add minced meat, chopped ham, chopped shrimps, chopped sausage or diced tofu.

You can substitute heavy cream with mayonnaise or shredded cheese.

If you want slightly firm steamed eggs, reduce the chicken stock to ½ cup.

You can purchase a ttukbaegi from Korean or Asian grocery stores. If you do not have a ttukbaegi, you can use a small saucepot, porcelain ware, stoneware or clay pot.

You can also cook the dish in a steamer. Brush a heat-resistant bowl with some oil. Fill 80% of the bowl with the egg mixture (including the chicken stock). If the bowl does not have a lid, cover it with plastic wrap. Steam the egg mixture for 15 minutes over medium-low heat.
