Nang Chong Stories : Fried Eggs
There are many people who love to cook eggs in different ways.
The Foochows have Taiping eggs, which are actually hard boiled eggs which are deep fried in hot oil, to give them a golden and blistered eggs.
Poached eggs are very popular amongst the Foochows who love them in their soups and noodle soups.
But then, one of the loveliest ways of giving a loved one an egg with his or her rice is this special way of fried egg. Just use a bit of oil in the kuali...after heating up the oil, crack an egg into the kuali. The egg white will start to bubble and become crispy. And soon it will be cooked before the egg yolk starts to jell.
Quicky ladle the egg on to a plate of rice...squeeze some soy sauce on top. And that is probably a good lunch for a child who has come home from school, or a sister who has come back from the farm.
