chinese tomato egg 

This recipe is incredibly easy to make. It has few ingredients, but it's extremely comforting to eat. It may not look that pretty, but it's delicious!!... I had the pleasure of first trying this dish at @chinaeastern airlines. In one of the flights departing from Shanghai; sadly none of the dinning options were kosher so i opted for not eating dinner, then one of the flight attendants noticed, so she offer to exchange my meal for hers which was incredibly nice. For others exchanging the pork and octopus for just rice with eggs might not have been the best deal, but to me it was a God sent meal, because it was a 14 hour flight. The comfort this simple ingredients provide will always be close to my heart. The original version has 2 tablespoons of sugar , but I like it more savory. If you would like it by all means add the sugar. I hope you enjoy this simple, but comforting dish with loved ones ;)
