Chinese Egg and Tomato

When my daughter came back home from China after her studies in 2012, she always talked about this dish she had  in China. One day she made this according to the original recipe. After that, I made it my self doing several experiments. At last, gathering everybody’s comments at home I adjusted the recipe created my own version. When we cook Chinese food at home, this dish is a must to the menu.
I know a Chinese girl who lives in Sri Lanka, who eats this only with the rice because she is lazy to cook. She told me that she adds only sugar to this. But I simply love this with the soy sauce.
