Mirage, who blogs over at Mahlzeit! with her post: Rinderrouladen

Mirage (or "G", as I like to call her), is another blogger who not only cooks up wonderful dishes, but also takes awesome pictures of her creations. Living in a country totally different from what she's used to, she strives to learn more about her environment and blogs about her experiences. Browsing through her food blog is a joy and I am sure you'd love her site, too. So why don't you go over and check out some of her elegantly captured yummy treats!

This week's food post is something that I tried for the first time: Toge (Mung Bean Sprouts) with Cumin


Ingredients
  • toge (mung bean sprouts, about two handfuls)
  • eggs (2, medium sized)
  • ground cumin (half a teaspoon; the taste could be overpowering if you're not used to it)
  • milk, flour, salt, pepper
  • oil for frying


Procedure:
  • Scramble the eggs; then add in the milk (about three tablespoons {i used evaporated milk}), salt, pepper, cumin, and flour (around three to four tablespoons). 
  • Mix evenly,and make sure it's not too 'watery' or too dense. Once you're satisfied with the consistency, add the mung bean sprouts.
  • Heat the pan and pour in the oil. Fry the mung bean sprouts mix in batches.
  • Once cooked (doesn't take long), remove from pan and drain in paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Serve hot. Or at room temperature...together with your favorite dip.


Had that with some ham slices and rice (yes, it was brunch). My three year old and I loved it dipped in sukang Iloko (made from cane vinegar, hence slightly sweeter); we also liked it dipped in balsamic vinegar. :)
...in case you're wondering what it tastes like, well...it reminded me so much of the vegetarian samosas that my sister and I usually get from an Indian deli. :L

Thanks for the feature! :) (FInally!) Kidding...I used to not like toge but when I first had Korean beef I have been addicted since!

thanks, G
...oo nga, at long last! lol. joke. xD
...i used to hate toge, too...since my mom always made us 'clean' (meaning snap off all those roots one by one...ugh) them before they were cooked. :D
...congratulations!

thanks, Ms. Dhemz
...oo, madali lang siya. if you find the taste of cumin too 'disturbing', you can substitute it with another seasoning. :)

thanks for joining the party again, ladies! <3

Another yummy recipe. One day, I'll list some of your recipes here and buy them all para one whole week, panay luto mo ang ulam ko. Lalo na yung with tofu at toge.

the mungo sprouts is perfect too with g's rouladen :)

Once, I got to read that cumin is one underrated spice. At first, I was hesitant to try this because of its smell (smells like pencil shavings to me), but when I first tried it, I just loved its taste.

Para syang simpleng okoy! Okoy ba o ukoy? ah basta yun! hehehe! Sarap nga nyan sa suka!

Luna Miranda at: Sat Jan 14, 12:47:00 AM GMT+8 said...

Hi Maiylah, I think those sprouts look great. I would eat it for a late breakfast too!. I'm sharing a recipe for a curried lentil soup with a very delicious raita. Have a fab weekend.
