2 red finger chilies, cut into small pieces (if unavailable in your city, just use red chili powder/green finger chilies

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon light soy sauce

Pinch of ground white pepper

3 tablespoons canola/vegetable/corn oil



Heat a wok/frying pan with 1 tablespoon canola/vegetable/corn oil over medium-high heat. Add long beans, chilies and coarsely chopped dried shrimps and sauté well. Reduce heat to medium and sprinkle some water (to steam the vegetable) to cook the long beans slightly tender. Remove wok/frying pan from heat and dish out the vegetable mixture to a mixing bowl. Let the vegetable mixture stand for 3 minutes. Add the eggs, salt, light soy sauce and ground white pepper; beat lightly with a fork.

Return the wok/frying pan to the heat with the remaining canola/vegetable/corn oil on medium-high heat. Pour egg mixture, slightly swizzle the wok/frying pan to spread a little of the egg mixture for even cooking. Pan-fry until the egg is firm set and golden; and turn over to panfry the other side until golden. Transfer to a serving dish and serve with steamed white rice or rice porridge.

Note: Your may also add 1½ tablespoons dried shrimp, soaked with hot water, drained and coarsely chopped (optional)
