You must be seeing more and more unfamiliar Asian vegetables even at supermarket stores. But you don’t try them because you don’t know how to cook them. ’Nira’ (Garlic Chives in Japanese) is a real super food. Why don’t you try it? ‘Nira’ & Egg is a great combination for stir-fry and soup. Here is another recipe that I am sure you would love.


2 Servings


‘Nira’ (Garlic Chives) 1 bunch *about 120g
Eggs 4
Salt & White Pepper
Canola Oil 1 tablespoon
Freshly Cooked Rice 2 servings

Sauce Ingredients

Chicken Stock 1 cup (*or Water 1 cup & Asian Chicken Bouillon Powder 1 teaspoon)
Soy Sauce 1 tablespoon
Mirin 1 tablespoon
Potato Starch Flour 1 tablespoon

  1. Wash ‘Nira’ (Garlic Chives) and cut about 3cm. Lightly beat Eggs and season with a pinch of Salt.
  2. Place Chicken Stock, Soy Sauce and Mirin in a small saucepan and mix well. If required, add some Salt. Then add Potato Starch Flour and heat over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  3. Heat Oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and cook Eggs gently stirring until set but still soft. Move it onto a plate.
  4. Cook ‘Nira’ until almost soft, season with some Salt & Pepper, then add the cooked Eggs and combine. *Alternatively you can cook ‘Nira’ first then add Eggs and cook them together.
  5. Half fill a bowl with freshly cooked rice and cover it with the mixture. Pour the sauce over generously and serve hot.
