Tomato Egg

This is one of the dish I will order from stalls at the food court. It is a simple dish that you can whip up very easily at home as well!

To encourage my family to eat more tomatoes, I have been adding this ingredient to my meals whenever possible. Tomato egg is one such dish.

This dish is basically egg omelet with tomatoes. It uses very easily available ingredients and is such a great accompaniment to a bowl of rice or even porridge!

Do give this a try and happy cooking!

3 eggs

A dash of white pepper

3. Add salt, pepper and fish sauce to the eggs and beat together.

  1. Dear LY

    Thanks for sharing this recipe with the step by step pictures. It is very helpful as I was not sure about the egg texture and when the end product looked a bit liquid, I thought I had made a mistake somewhere during cooking. But when I compared with your end product picture, hey, it's about the same and the taste is even more surprising, very yummy!!

    1. Dear Wendy, thanks for your feedback and I'm so happy the step by step pictures were helpful. :)
