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!

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
