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!

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
