Chinese Style Preserved Radish Omelette

I like having my curry with an egg and a vegetable dish at home. This is a Chinese style Preserved Radish Omelette that I served with my pineapple curry. Preserved radish provides a good crunch to the omelette. If you are going to try to make this omelette, make sure you get the radish strips variety instead of the chopped up version. They are not as salty and taste much better.

Chinese Style Preserved Radish Omelette


100 g of Peeled Prawns, diced 

60 g Preserved Radish, soaked for 5 minutes, drained and diced
1 Red Chili, thinly sliced
2 cloves Garlic, chopped
2 Scallions, thinly sliced
4 Eggs
2 Dashes of White Pepper
1 tsp Soy Sauce 
Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste


In a cast iron or a non-stick frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp of the oil on a moderate heat. Toss in the preserved radish and stir fry until fragrant. Then mix in the garlic and prawns and give it a quick stir. When the prawns turn pink, remove the mixture and set aside.

Beat the eggs together with prawn mixture, scallions, soy sauce, and season with white pepper and a pinch of sea salt.

Heat the pan over medium to high heat, add ½ Tbsp of oil and pour in half of the egg mixture. When the egg has become lightly golden on the bottom, flip it over and cook the other side. Then continue to cook with the other half of the egg mixture. Serve immediately with some scallions and red chili, if desired.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
