Mini Chicken Omelet With Spicy Tomato Sauce 茄汁蛋肉餅

I am getting use to the idea of cooking and eating on my own ever since the eating arrangement at the tummies was abandoned 2 weeks ago. I am spending less time thinking about food and planning for my own menu can't be easier without any restrictions. A dish that I would request when I was little, so it was perfect on a very depressing day. Few free to use your choice of mince and the meat omelet is just as delicious without the sauce.

serves 4 as part of a Chinese meal
you'll need;
500 g of chicken breasts, minced
2 eggs, beaten
dash of soy
dash of white pepper
dash of sesame oil
1 tsp of grated ginger
mix all the ingredients well

for the sauce;
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3 bird chillies, chopped
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 cup of peas
5 tbs of tomato sauce
1 tbs of Chinkiang black Vinegar
1 tbs of sugar
1 tbs of light soy
dash of white pepper
1/2 cup of chicken stock
corn flour solution

Pan fry meat and egg mixture in a hot pan til golden on both side. You may make a large omelet and cut it up later.

Place meat omelets aside and keep warm. 

To prepare the sauce - saute chopped garlic and chillies til fragrant then add in tomato sauce and onion. Fry for a minute then add in the rest of the seasonings and stock, add peas. Check for seasonings and thicken sauce with a little corn flour solution.

Pour sauce over meat omelet. Garnish with some chopped spring onions.

Perfect with a hot bowl of rice. I am feeling so much better already :)
