This dish is like the Mua Eu Khay [Sesame Oil Chicken]. For the vegetarian version, I used vegetarian egg with sesame oil and lots of ginger. Simple yet appetising.
|Pan fried vegetarian egg|
10 pieces vegetarian egg - pan fried until golden brown
5 dried mushrooms - soaked and halved [can substitute with bok nee]
3 tbsp ginger - cut fine shreds
3 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
3 tbsp sesame oil
a dash cooking wine
100 ml water [tau pau will soak up some of the gravy]
- Heat sesame oil in wok, saute finely cut ginger until aromatic and slightly crispy. Set aside.
- Add in dried mushrooms fry till aromatic. Then add in sauce ingredrients and water.
- Bring it to a boil for 1 - 2 minutes, then put in the fried vegetarian egg pieces. Braised for another 5-10 minutes and add a dash cooking wine. Dish out to serve with rice.
