FRIED EGGS


This has to be one of the Kong-Kay moments - running out of idea and ad-libbing; presenting you with a mediocre recipe such as fried eggs. Loosing my noodle! Well, like I've said, what you see is what I eat!

Frankly, not too long ago, it was featured in the Malay Mail, that people
in West Malaysia pay RM5 (US$1.35 ) for such a fried egg. It may not seem much to some since an uncooked organic egg might cost that much in certain places. Well, an ordinary egg costs only US$0.11 here.

Kylie Kwong featured it in her big budget cooking show. Here's my shoe-string production......





INGREDIENTS

3 Fresh Eggs (room temp.)

Vegetable Oil

1 Chilli (thinly sliced)

1 Spring Onion(thinly sliced)

Oyster Sauce





  1. Crack 3 eggs into a bowl.
  2. In a wok pour enough vegetable oil to shallow-fry the eggs (about 1½ cup) on medium heat. Use a spatula to swirl the oil around the wok so that the side is coated.
  3. When the oil is hot enough, gently pour the eggs into the hot oil.
  4. Spoon the hot oil onto the top of the egg, while not disturbing the eggs.
  5. Slightly jiggle the wok; if the eggs slide, the bottom is set.
  6. Slide the spatula to the bottom of the eggs, lift the up; bring to the side of the wok, flip over, and let them slide into the oil.
  7. Fry for another few seconds, the eggs will be done.The eggs will be crispy on the outside.
  8. Remove and drain off excess oil. Drizzle oyster sauce on top of the eggs. Garnish with chilli and spring onion.
**The best part is that you don't have to pay a king's ransom for this endeavor.

ed,
an cold egg straight from the fridge also makes it stick to the wok.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
