Fried Egg With Salted Mustard Leaves [Kiam Chye]

Another quite unusual omelette recipe which was published in Marshall Cavendish  table calendar years ago.  The previous unusual egg recipe from the same calendar was posted several days ago [Spicy Salted Eggs]

Month end is coming soon and I think my egg-tion must cease too.  I'll definitely sit back to enjoy all the wonderful recipes shared in this month's LTU event.

I can say this is the first time, I'm frying omelette with preserved mustard leaves [salted leaves - kiam chye - hum choy].  Very simple recipe and not much ingredients but this omelette is egg-cellent. 

[serves 2-4]
100 gm preserved salted vegetables - kiam chye - julienned and soaked for 5 minutes.  Drain and squeeze dry
2 cloves garlic - chopped
1 red chillies - deseeded and julienned
1 sprig coriander leaves - chopped
150 gm small prawns - shelled and cleaned
2 - 3 tbsp oil
2 large eggs - lightly beaten with 1/2 tsp salt and ground black pepper. Add in chopped coriander

  1. Heat a non stick pan on medium low heat.  Fry julienned salted vegetables for a few second.  Push aside, add in oil.  Fry garlic.
  2. Add in chilli and mix with vegetables.
  3. Pour in beaten eggs, swirl pan to form a round omelette.  Before top of egg is cooked, add prawns.  Cook for about 2 minutes.
  4. Flip the omelette over and cook through.  
  5. Cut up roughly with ladle and serve.

        Hi KImmy, this dish is very new to me. I never thought it can be cooked in this way. I ever steamed kiam chye (chopped) with minced pork, one of my favourites. Shall give this kiam chye omelette a try. Thanks for sharing.

        Hi Baby Sumo, it's fun joining the LTU event. No doubt we have never ate so many eggs in a period but my family has enjoyed all the wonderful egg dishes so far.
