  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (optional for extra flavor)
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


  1. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic and half of the green onions. Sauté for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  4. Add the tomato wedges to the skillet. Sprinkle sugar and a pinch of salt over the tomatoes. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and begin to release their juice.
  5. Push the tomatoes to one side of the skillet. Pour the beaten eggs onto the other side. Let them sit for a few seconds and then gently scramble them, mixing with the tomatoes.
  6. If desired, add a tablespoon of soy sauce for extra flavor.
  7. Cook for an additional minute, just until the eggs are set but still soft and slightly runny.
  8. Drizzle with sesame oil and garnish with the remaining green onions and fresh cilantro.
  9. Serve immediately with steamed rice.
