Fried Egg with Tomatoe

Fried Egg with Tomatoe

A very popular home-made Chinese dish.

2 Eggs
1 tomatoe
Green onion 2 cm
Garlic 1 clove
Ginger 3 slices
Sugar 1 tablespoon

. Beat 2 eggs.
. Heat oil (about 2 tablespon), when steamy hot, pour the beaten eggs. When the bottom is solid, turn it
. Set aside
. Stir fry green onion garlic, ginger for 1 minute. Then add tomatoe. When the tomatoe is soft, add the beaten egg. For a better presentation, don't over cook the tomatoe. Cook for 1 minute.
. Add sugar* and salt for taste


* Tomatoes are sour so you want to put relatively lot of sugar. Say, around 1 tablespoon.

The amount of garlic and green onion are really optional. I love them a lot, so I put lots of them!

Some tomatoe is more juicy than others. If yours is not juicy, add more water during cooking

Expats tips for living in China: This dish is really common in China. Almost all cafetarias carry this dish.
