Tomato Eggs 番茄炒鸡蛋

Tomato Eggs is a very simple dish, and I would say every Chinese family also know how to cook this dish. Just with two important ingredients, tomato and egg. Why I still want to share this simple tomato eggs to you? This is because my mom came out with a very good version which she added a special seasoning..Check it out below..

- The special seasoning here is Fish sauce... it makes the Tomato Eggs with richer flavour..
