Fried Wood ear mushroom with egg 木耳香炒蛋

Wood ear mushroom aka black fungus is basically tasteless but the health benefit of eating is great.  I was told that if you drink this every day that is boiling some wood ear mushroom with water, it is very good for health.  It can cleanse blood, rich is dietary fibre, high in iron, free radical busting vitamin B-2 and many more.

For me, I have never tried drinking as a beverage but I especially love it when it is steam with chicken and ginger but today I want to try a different dish.

A good dish to have on a no meat Friday I must say.

So let's dig into this Fried Wood ear mushroom with egg 木耳香炒蛋.

What you need:
Serve 4

40g wood ear mushroom (black fungus)
1 punnet fresh button mushroom
4 egg, beaten
3 dried chillies, deseed and cut chunk
2 tbsp soya sauce
½ tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1½ tbsp of potato starch with 2 tbsp water
300ml water (adjust accordingly)
dash of pepper


Hydrate the wood ear mushroom until it is soft.  Remove the hard part in the centre.  Cut into bite size.

Heat 2 tbsp oil and on low heat add in beaten eggs.  Using a chopstick, stir occasionally to break into pieces.  Fry until fragrant and golden.  DO NOT OVERCOOK.  Remove and set aside.
