Egg Foo Yung is a delicious Chinese recipe that originated in Shanghai but is now found all over the world especially in Chinese American restaurants.Egg foo yung, which is translated as lotus flower is a very easy authentic Chinese recipe and we are going to show you how to make it below.

To make the gravy which is optional just mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to a boil slowly stirring frequently. Once the gravy has thickened, turn heat to very low to keep it warm until ready to use.

Now, we’ll preheat the oven to 200F. Next, line a platter with several sheets of paper towel and mix all the ingredients except the vegetable oil together in a mixing bowl.

Now, heat a frying pan hot and dry and pour in the vegetable oil to a depth of about 1/2 inch. Make sure to keep the oil at this level by adding more oil as needed. Bring oil temperature to medium.

Stir the omelette mixture each time before you take a ladleful.This makes sure that you have the proper ratio of liquid to solid ingredients in each. With a ladle, take a scoopful of the egg mixture and gently put into the frying pan.
When the first omelette has gone stiff, gently move it over to make room for the next one.

The number of omelettes you can make at once depends on the size of your frying pan. When one side of the omelette has turned a lovely golden brown colour, turn it over gently with a pancake turner and gently fry the other side.

Once fried, transfer the omelettes from the frying pan onto the paper−lined platter. Keep them warm in the oven until all the omelettes are ready to be served.The optional gravy which is delicious can be poured over the egg foo yung to make them even more appetizing.
