Tomato and Egg Stir Fry

Posted on 15 Aug, 2022
Tomato and Egg Stir Fry

Serves: 2-3

Scramble the Eggs:

1. Whisk eggs in a bowl and set aside.

2. Heat a large non-stick skillet or wok on low heat. Add in a knob of butter.

3. Once the butter has almost melted, pour in the whisked egg. Scramble the eggs by allowing them to slightly set against the surface of the pan before using a spoon or spatula to gently pull the eggs from the edges of the pan back into the centre. Tilt your pan to allow the runny part of the eggs to make contact with the pan and set. Be gently to create long soft ribbons/chunks of egg. Switch off the heat before all the egg has set. (The eggs will continue to cook) Do not overcook your eggs. You want them to be soft. 

4. Carefully transfer your eggs to a plate.

Assembling the rest: 

1. Wipe your pan clean with a kitchen paper towel. Add oil and heat your pan to high.

2. Add garlic and white parts of the spring onions. Saute until fragrant.

3. Add diced tomatoes and break down in the pan to create a thick sauce.

4 Add in sugar and soy sauce.

5. Add in chunks of tomato and stir to mix.

6. Taste for seasoning.

7. Add in the rest of the spring onions and take your pan off the heat.

8. Add the scrambled eggs into your tomato mix. Roughly fold through, taking care not to break up the egg too much in the stir fry.

Stir Fried Squid With Vegetables

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Serves: 4

1. Prepare the squid: Remove the head to detach from the body, pull out the quill and remove the outer skin. Be careful not to break the ink pocket and the eyes.  Clean the squid by placing them in a medium size bowl and massaging salt on them throughly. Rinse and drain. This will get rid of any fishy smells. Cut the squid into rings.

4. In large wok over medium high heat, add oil. Once oil is hot, add garlic and fry until fragrant. Add tomato and cucumber and stir well for 1-2 minutes until they are cooked but still crunchy. Then add squid and pineapple, chinese celery and brown onion. Season with fish sauce, salt and chicken powder.

5. Tranfer to a serving plate and sprinkle the top with some pepper. Serve with rice.
