This is a common household dish that most grannies have cooked and it can come in a form of an omelette or scrambled eggs. The most basic ingredients are eggs and long beans and all suggested ingredients mostly are optional.

For long bean, this is one of the dishes that we usually cooked besides stir frying with sambal, braising with soya sauce or use in making vegetable braised rice. My family members especially like this dish to go with porridge and white rice.

The same recipe can be used for cooking French beans and frankly speaking, French beans has a stronger aroma than long beans but both are equally delicious. For this recipe, your sliced long beans shall be as thin as possible and not in chunk form. Only then, it can be easily get cooked and become soft that blends well with the omelette.

CONCLUSION

Though simple, but I think it is worth for me to capture this traditional recipe. If you do not want to be an omelette form, you can always add eggs and fried it in a scramble eggs manner.  Lastly, remember that French beans can be used also.
