I am intrigued by these two exotic eggs - century egg and salted duck egg. They have been widely used in Asian cooking and are as common as chicken eggs.

Century egg is the black egg with a jelly-like texture. The salted duck egg looks like a normal egg, but salty in taste.

This is a a simple and delicious plate of stir-fried exotic eggs with garlic chives.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

1 century egg
1 salted duck egg
1 bunch garlic chive
50g sweet potato flour
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 teaspoon salt

Crack and gently peel the century egg & salted duck egg from the shells

Cut the eggs into quarters. Then into halves.

Lightly dust the century egg in sweet potato flour.

Heat the oil in a pan, and shallow pan fry the egg until you get a crispy coating.

Sautee the garlic chives in the remaining oil for 3 minutes .
Season with salt.
Add the salted duck egg pieces into the pan and quick stir-fry for 1 minute.
Add the century eggs back into the pan and stir-fry for further 1 minute.
Remove and serve immediately.

If you order this dish at a fine Asian restaurant, they actually give this dish a beautifully name "Forever abundance in gold and silver".

It is a simple dish to cook but the taste and the name is very pleasing.
