Fried String Beans with Chives & Egg

There are many ways to cook string beans or long beans. You can stir-fry with dried prawns and chilli paste, add it to sayur lodeh, vegetable curry, fried rice, etc, etc.

A favourite of mine is to fry it with eggs.

What I Used:

6 to 8 string beans, chopped thinly
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
some chives, cut to 2-cm lengths
some prawns, cubed
2 to 3 eggs, lightly beaten and seasoned with some salt
a little water
sliced chilli (optional)

What I Did:

1. Heat some oil in a pan and saute garlic, onions and string beans.

2. Add a little water to cook the beans to soften slightly.

3. Then add prawns and chives, stir to mix.

4. Pour egg over and leave it to set, then turn over to cook the other side.

5. Serve with rice or eat it in a sandwich.


  1. This is one of my favorite dish that I used to cook at home. Simple and healthy.

  2. I used to eat this when I was younger. I should cook this again soon!

  3. I want some plain porridge now to go with this.

  4. family favourite. When I am busy and nothing to eat, my girl will cook this :D

  5. I love it too. Looks so homey and delish.

  6. one of my childhood fave dish! love it with porridge. I just cook it last week but mine a bit less fanciful with only eggs and beans :)

  7. Love the look of this delish dish!


  8. Anything with eggs will catch my attention, including this. :)
