Fried Eggs with Preserved Radish


As the weather has been scorching hot these days, I've cooked white porridge for lunch.  Whipped up this easy omelette, a very common and popular dish to go with it .......... 'Choy Poh Dan' or Radish Omelette.




Stir-fry the radish first, then add them into the beaten eggs, toss in the spring onions.  Pan fry one side, then flip over to the other side and  pan fry.






Dish them onto a serving plate, garnish with some chopped red chilly and enjoy with white porridge.

Ingredients
  • 2 eggs lightly  beaten
  • 50 gm choy poh - dried radish, rinsed and chopped
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • Spring onions  - chopped
  • A dash of pepper
  • Red chilly for garnishing
  • Oil for frying
Preparation
  1. Lightly beat up 2 eggs, add in light soya sauce, pepper and chopped spring onions.  Set aside.
  2. Heat up a pan, add in 1 Tbsp oil and stir-fry the chopped choy poh.  Dish out and mix into the beaten eggs.
  3. In the same pan, add in oil if required, pour in the egg mixture, wait for the bottom to set and turn light brown, flip it over and continue to pan fry.
  4. Once both sides are browned, dish out.
  5. Serve hot with white porridge.

  10. Looks great! You managed to get the choy poh to stick in the eggs, if I were to cook this, I can't get it in neat pieces like yours.

  11. I actually created a Choy Poh egg from fresh daikon(radish) recently, by accident. It tasted almost like the one made from preserved turnips.

    Thanks! Did you pour in the egg first, then add the radish? Think this way the radish doesn't stick to the egg. I've eaten in one quite popular porridge shop, the way they do it is different. The egg is still a bit wet and slightly raw and the radish is just mingled in and the eggs are in small soft pieces. Not bad too!

    Accidental dishes can be yummy too!

    Yes, it is just perfect with porridge!

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
