韭菜煎蛋 Green green egg*

*Initially I called this post 'Q-choy with egg', but I thought the name used by Twinsmom's daughter is more adorable. So, green green egg it is. =)


I am unsure about the English name of such vege. In Chinese it is written as 韭菜, pronounced as jiu3 cai4 in Mandarin, and gou choy in Kantonese. Chinese often fry this vege with egg, or mix with minced meat and make dumplings (primarily gyoza, or sui gow).


Self-explanatory enough.


I call this the vegetarian version of Oh-Chien (oyster omelette).

foodcrazee, do you use Kosher salt often? I always see the chef using such salt, I wonder does it taste any different as it is refered as gourmet salt.

boo, thanks, i was lazy to describe the methods and I thought most of the people know how to make this dish too. So, i made it that way. glad you like it.

haha, green green egg is so adorable! i'm gonna go change the name of the post ... =D
