Oh-my-gravy! Mui Fun - Rice with seafood and egg gravy

Is Mui Fun still popular, or even common? It does not seem to me. I guess not many people like their rice dish to be soggy; as Mui Fun, is basically known as a mixture of ingredients in rice with gravy.

It is special on its own and taste especially appetizing with preserved green chilies! Just that, you have to make sure the rice is soaked in seafood and egg gravy, and yet ensure not being too soggy.

I decided to give it a try based on what I know about Wat Dan Hor- Fried Rice Noodles with Egg Gravy Sauce. It is almost similar as the gravy here, just that cooked rice is used instead.


Mui Fun - Rice with seafood and egg gravy (serves 2)
-2 rice bowls cooked rice
-6 medium-sized prawns; shelled and deveined - marinated with a pinch of salt, pepper
-4 scallops - marinated with a pinch of salt, pepper
-1 piece chicken thigh meat; sliced to bite-size -marinated with drizzle of sesame oil
-0.8-1lbs bok choy and bok choy-sum , washed and cut into sections of stalks/stems and leaves

-1/2tsp crushed garlic
-1/2tsp crushed ginger
-1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 1/2 cup water
-1/2cup chicken broth
-2 eggs
-pepper and salt to taste
