Minced meat omelette ~ 'Dan Kok'


I remember that my mum used to make this omelette for us and my siblings would run for the tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.  This was a very well received dish for us and I re-incarnated this recently ..... 'Dan Kok'.



First fry the seasoned minced pork with some oil, dish it up.
Then spoon some beaten egg onto the pan and add in the minced pork, fold it up.








This is a very easy-to-do omelette and I'm sure that your family members will love it just like mine.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 150 gm minced meat
  • Pepper
Seasoning for meat
  • 1/4  tsp salt and sugar
  • 1  tsp sesame oil
  • Pepper
Preparation
  1. Beat up the eggs and add in light soya sauce and pepper.
  2. Heat up a pan with some oil, stir-fry the minced meat till cooked.  Dish out.
  3. Add in more oil and  spoon about 2  Tbsp beaten egg onto the pan, add in the some minced meat in the centre.  Flip half of the batter over to form a crescent, turn over and fry the other side.
  4. Continue with the rest of the egg batter and minced meat.
  5. Dish out onto serving plate.
  6. Garnish with some chopped chilli.
  7. Serve immediately with white rice.

  3. That's a very smart way of hiding meat inside omelette. Looks pretty too. I think it's a good way to hide vegetables for picky kids :D

  6. I usually fry the minced meat first and then pour the beaten eggs into it and allow it to set before flipping over and they turned out looking like pancakes:D Your version looks prettier

  7. Yes I remember my mum used to make this dish but fried the eggs together with the meat. I like your folded omelette version, so sophisticated :)

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
