Tomato Egg Recipe

One of the husband’s favourite dishes from our usual mixed rice stall is a Tomato Egg dish that is sweet, tangy and saucy which really gives a lot of punch and flavour when doused over white rice. The only gripe I had with that was that it contained MSG and was quite oily so I tried recreating the dish at home and it’s now one of our preferred side dishes for dinner that I make regularly. Very easy and cheap to make though I don’t encourage eating egg (yolks) everyday for health reasons. Enjoy!
