Method:

Stir-Fry

Ingredients

100g
garlic chives - flat (1 small bunch)
3 large
eggs
1 tsp
sugar - evaporated cane juice
1/2 tsp
soy sauce
2 tsp
vegetable oil
salt, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Thoroughly wash the garlic chives in a bowl of water as they tend to hold a lot of grit towards the stems. Chop them into 1" (3 centimeter) lengths.
2
Beat the eggs, sugar, soy sauce and salt together in a small bowl until uniform in color.
3
Heat a nonstick frying pan, over medium-high heat, until hot. Add the oil and then the garlic chives, sautéing until they're bright green and wilted.
4
Pour the eggs into the pan and turn down the heat. Let this cook until you see the bottom of the egg go from translucent to opaque.
5
Give it a gentle stir, scraping the cooked egg up off the bottom of the pan, with a spatula and allowing the raw egg to run underneath. Let this cook until the bottom layer turns opaque and stir again.
6
Repeat step 5 until the egg has reached your desired doneness. Keep in mind that the egg will continue to cook a little after you take it off the heat, so you want to aim for the niratama to to be just a bit less cooked than you want it.
