Stir Fry Eggs with Tomatoes


As long as I can remember I always loved this quick little dish. The dish goes very well with rice or noodles. My grandma and my mom made this for me when I was a toddler. Ever since then I’ve been making this for myself. It’s sort of my happy food, because if you know me well enough you’d know that I LOVE EGGS!

What you’ll need (Ingredients)

  • 1 whole tomatoe (irregularly diced just a bit smaller than an inch per piece)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1  scallions (chopped)
  • 1 slice of ginger
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tsp cooking starch
  • 4 tsp vegetable oil
  • 4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of sugar

Let’s start cooking, I assume the above is neatly set aside for you to drop in to your pan. I like to keep a really clean kitchen while cooking.

Cooking the Egg

  1. Add 1 tsp of salt in your eggs, beat lightly until dissolved.
  2. Preheat pan.
  3. Add 3 tsp of vegetable oil.
  4. Poor eggs in pan cook to the style of your liking (I like to cook my eggs as I would cook an omelet so I can dice it later with my spatula).
  5. Once eggs are lightly browned, empty your eggs on to a plate/bowl/…

Cooking the Tomatoes and Adding the Eggs

  1. Preheat pan
  2. Add 1 tsp of oil
  3. Add 1 tsp of salt
  4. Add scallions and and garlic in to pan
  5. Stir fry for about 2 minutes in medium heat.
  6. Mix sugar, soy sauce, and starch in a quarter cup of warm water.
  7. Mix until dissolved
  8. Poor mixture in to Pan and stir fry using low heat.
  9. Add your eggs and your slice of ginger.
  10. Mix for about a minute more
  11. Ready to Serve!!!


  • Adding some of your favourite ham to the mixture.
  • Adding fresh onions is also a good choice.


I’ve found a video for this dish. The cooking and preparation is similar. However, this is such a home cooked dish that every Chinese household have their own renditions.
