Small sweet omelets

For 2 USD (about 12 RMB) You can make few omelets like that, using one or two eggs, a bit of wheat flour and sugar.
But it will also fit some fruit, that can be served with it - for example fried or baked banana or fried slices of an aple.

other proposition can be also pancakes
(yes, a lot of them in my recipes...)





but this time - flat pancakes fried on all pan surface (crepes)




Whay You need is a can of beer (can be cheap - for 3 or 4 RMB), one egg, and some wheat flour (I think, that in 12 RMB we can fit about o,5 kg, but if You want to have spare money for some filling (banana, or other soft fruit) - use less flour, and off course less beer.

It can be even cheaper, because instead of beer You can use just water.


full recipe - in my "cooking corner" of China Daily

now more healthy dish, no wheat flour :)

souflette/omelette-like fried eggs with soy sauce



This dish was proposed by one of the forum members, after my former fried eggs recipe.
Thank You again, it was great idea!
Eggs fried AFTER being mixed with soy sauce have creamy-foam structure, very delicate.

for 12 RMB it is easy to fit 3 eggs, a cup of rice, and some vegetables to perform full dish.

Full recipe is of course also in CD forum - look here

next one from my "library"...

Green noodles




it can be served as a side dish, or just snack.

In recipe I made mistake by using self-rising flour. Using normal is much better, noodles are not so delicate, but easier to made, and have the same taste.

For 12 RMB You can make huge amount of that (cost of 0,5 kg of wheat flour is about 5 RMB, 3 eggs makes another 5 or even less, and for a 2 You can have nice green onions or other "leafy" vegetable), or smaller amount and some "ready made" sauce.

Char Siu noodles





this is very simple recipe, and very cheap.
Even with full list of ingredients You can keep into the budget of 12 RMB (2USD).

Pack of noodles is about 5 RMB, spoon or two of Char Siu sauce is much less then even 1 RMB, the same goes with soy sauce. Rest of the budget You can spend on vegetables, and spices up to Your taste.
(And on the picture You see 1/4 of the one mentioned quantity)
