Cooking Basics

Eggs - beating

When making a Japanese fried egg omelet, steamed egg custard or such where you desire soft and smooth eggs keep your chopsticks low in the bowl and beat using small movements as if slicing through the egg white. For scrambled eggs and egg-drop dishes, if you beat using big movements and in a way that does not fully mix the yolks with the whites, you will achieve fluffy eggs when cooked.
