Mushroom Foo Yoong Hai (Chinese Mushroom Omelet)

by - Monday, August 24, 2009


I’ve been curious for a long time to try this kind of food. Its name is sounded so oriental that it must be a kind of Chinese food. Yeah, that’s right. When I heard its name for a very first time without knowing its picture, I completely couldn’t figure out the appearance of this food. What kind of food is that?? Later, to satisfy my curiosity, I searched it in google that next gave enlightenment about it. After seeing its picture I knew that it’s looked like an omelet, yea Chinese omelet. One of the main ingredients from a recipe I read that time was Crab meat. Crab??? O… it made my desire to try cooking up this dish fade. Crab=expensive for me and difficult to be found around my boardinghouse :’(. But, not too long after that I got a Foo Yoong Hai recipe which uses mushroom as one of the ingredients. Great recipe! Should give it a try :D. But I’m so sorry to forget the source of this recipe, if I’m not mistaken it was from Nova.

(Chinese Mushroom Omelet)

1 stalk green onion, coarsely chop
1 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, smash then finely chop
10 shiitake mushroom, coarsely chop
5 button mushroom, coarsely chop
4 eggs, beat
½ tbsp all purpose flour
½ tsp ground white pepper

1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp corn starch, dissolve with small amount of water
150 ml chicken stock/water
2 tbsp light soya sauce
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground white pepper

1. Heat oil, sauté garlic until fragrant. Add all mushrooms and chopped green onion. Sauté until wilted. Remove from heat.
2. In a bowl, beat well eggs, flour, ground white pepper, and salt. Add the sautéed mushroom. Mix well.
3. Heat margarine on a non stick pan. Pour the mushroom. Fry until done. (I fried the omelet in two sections, but if you like you can fry it at once. I like thin and well-fried omelet :D)
4. Sauce: Heat the stock. Add it with oyster sauce, light soya sauce, salt, and ground white pepper. Before you remove from heat, add with corn starch. Stir well.
