Basic Homesick Food

Anyone who lives outside of their homeland will at some point feel homesick for familiar tastes and smells. This feeling of nostalgia hit me this morning when I picked a corgette from my garden.

A very basic dish without much preparation. Suitable for people who are 'spice shy'. Dress it up with chilli sauce, soya sauce, ketchup or even with a sprinkle of garam masala, it becomes a multiculture dish.


  • 300-400 gm corgette (sliced into sticks)
  • 3-4 eggs (whisked)
  • 2 pips of garlic
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 1tsp salt or 1tsp chicken broth powder
  • 1 fresh milled pepper


  1. Heat up a pan (preferably non-stick), add oil into pan when it is hot. Once it starts to smoke (yes!! smoke!): add garlic.
  2. Stir garlic till it starts to brown. Add corgette and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add salt or chicken broth powder. Pour whisked eggs over the whole surface of corgette and let the egg cook.
  4. Do not stir. It will only take about 30 seconds (if the flame is high).
  5. Flip the 'omelette' over, try not to break it up.
    I was not successful with mine...   ;-(
  6. Cook for another 30 seconds. Done. Serve warm.
