Chai Po Tan (菜脯蛋) / Salted Turnips Omelet
Chai Po Tan or 菜脯蛋 is one common home cook eggs dish at my house. My husband and Evy love anything with eggs, either boiled eggs, eggs in soup, scrambled eggs, omelet or stir-fry eggs. This salted turnips omelet is something I had when I was small so naturally I love to buy and cook this for my family. Here's my recipe to share, for newbies who doesn't know how to make this easy dish. :P Good with rice or porridge!
1/4 cup of minced sweet salted turnips (can easily get it at Asian store)
2 tbsp. of chopped scallions (optional)
1/2 tsp. light soy sauce
1/4 tsp. white pepper powder
About 3 Tbsp. of cooking oil
1. In a bowl, break the eggs, add in the salted turnips, scallions, soy sauce and white pepper. Whisk until well blended. Set aside.
2. Heat wok with oil. When smoking hot, pour in the beaten eggs. Stir and flip to cook both sides. Dish out to serve.
