Fried omelette with Long Beans 煎 蛋 炒 長 豆
Mum made this dish a lot as supermarkets sell these green beans so cheaply and you get quite a lot in one packet. This dish is the same as the omelette and Chinese chives dish but instead of the peppery chives flavour this is a more satisfying mouth full and milder in taste flavour. Both good but just depends what you prefer. Both mum and Grandma made this dish a lot so it’s only fair that I cook it a lot too.
Prep Time: 7-8 minutes
Cooking Time: 6 minutes 30 seconds
4 free-range eggs
200 grams Long green beans
4 tablespoons water
50 ml cold water
1 tablespoon groundnut oil
1 teaspoon corn flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 dashes white pepper powder
- Wash, dry long beans, gather into a bunch. Cut into small dices and set aside.
- In a bowl, mix the corn flour and water together to form a starchy liquid. Add with eggs in a bowl and beat thoroughly.
- Heat a pan on medium heat, add oil, once hot, add the long beans to cook for 1 minute before adding water. Cook for further 2 minutes then add in the egg mixture. Mix the eggs quickly twice in a circular motion to fluff the eggs. Swirl the pan to even out the egg mixture, heat for 1 minute before flipping it over to heat for 30 seconds. Add salt and pepper. Serve.
Hi Winse, What kind of size pan do you use to cook this? Thanks.
Hi Louise. Just a medium size pan will do. A pan that you are usually comfortable in using. 🙂
