4 mushrooms (soak and dice)
100 gm lotus seeds (soak and break into half)
Handful of snow fungus florets
2 dried scallops

Prepare ingredients and put together into the melon.  Pour hot chicken stock into melon till 3/4 full. Replace top of melon.  Steam melon and its contents for about 2.5 hrs or until melon turns soft.  Add seasoning.  Use spoon to scrape the wall of the melon carefully to serve the soft melon flesh with soup.
