Chai Poh Omelette


My mother didn't make chai poh omelette (菜脯卵) very often, because chai poh wasn't a regular item in her pantry. So, I can't say I have a fabulous recipe which was passed on from my mother, and which I will pass on to my daughter. This is a recipe I came up with for friends who think that chai poh omelette is de rigueur when they come to my place for Teochew porridge.

Teochew Porridge


New rice is better than old when making Teochew porridge. New rice is rice that's harvested recently. It has a high starch content. Old rice is less starchy, because it has been harvested and stored for some time.
