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!

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

Kuih Salat aka Seri muka ~ 沙拉糕

Kuih Salat aka Seri Muka is a decadent Peranakan Chinese or Nyonya kuih consisting of two layers.  The bottom layer is made of glutinous rice and coconut milk while the top layer is a layer of green coconut milk custard flavoured and coloured from the juice of the pandan leaves. Kuih Salat aka Seri muka ~  沙拉糕 (A)  Bottom layer 300 gm glutinous rice 100 ml coconut milk 100 ml water 1/2 tsp salt some Pandan (screwpine) leaves Blue pea flower (Bunga Telang) juice Method Wash the glutinous rice till water is clear.  Soak it for about 4 hours, preferably overnight which I did.  Next day, drain, wash and strain to get rid of excess water.   Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper and oil the sides.   Pour the rice into this pan. Mix the coconut milk with water and salt, then pour the mixture onto the rice.  Shake it a bit for even distribution.  The mixture should just cover the rice. Place pandan leaves on the rice and steam the rice under medium flame for 30 minutes. Remove the pan
