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