Eggs Mixture
  • 4 extra large eggs, mixed in a bowl
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Step 1: Cook Tomatoes
  1. Heat pan over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil
  2. Add sliced tomatoes into pan
  3. Add ½ teaspoon sugar (optional)
  4. Add chicken stock or water
  5. Add Sauce Mixture
  6. Stir tomatoes occasionally and cook for roughly 3 minutes or until they are tender
  7. Give a quick stir to the potato starch water, then add it to the pan little by little, stir as you go, to thicken the sauce
  8. Remove tomatoes with the sauce and set aside
Step 2: Cook Eggs
  1. Heat a dry, clean pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon oil
  2. Add eggs mixture into pan
  3. Stir and cook until slightly undercooked (still a bit watery)
  4. Add the cooked tomatoes and sauce into pan
  5. Turn off the heat and add green onions
  6. Stir a few times and serve!
As you are adding the potato starch water to thicken the sauce, don’t pour all the mixture into the pan all at once. You don’t want the sauce to be too thick. Taste and adjust to your preference. Just remember that the sauce will be thicker as it cools.

For best smooth eggs, in step 2, add in the tomatoes when the eggs are still slightly watery and more undercooked than you’d preferred. Plus, the eggs are still being cooked on the plate when it’s served.
