icafe: You're welcome 🙂
Lyndsey: Thanks! So good that you can grow so many type of herbs at home. But I can only grow certain type of herbs and spices in my backyard because of the humid weather here. Wish that I can stay next to you 😀
Sonia: Don't worry, when your kids learn to eat Guo Tie, they will love chives.
Nostalgia: Oh, Its really yummy 🙂
yummitty yum yum1
too bad, my kids dont really appreciate chive, I have no chance to cook this.
Thank you so much for the Happy Mama Blogger Award…much appreciated~ ^^
Looks wonderful. I love using fresh herbs in my omelettes. Chives are one herb that I can grow well they are so easy to start from seed too. Parsley and mint not so well. My rosemary is the size of a shrub now, and it's so handy to go out and snip some. Sage and marjoram are the other two that grow well here. Okay now that you have my herb list down, lol! I'm now going to try this delicious recipe!
Congrats on all your well deserved awards!
Pei-Lin: I also loved all types of cooked eggs. Next when you add cornstarch, please feedback to me.
Tania: Thank you. So you can get easily. Murasaki from Spain told me it not easy to get Chives there.
I always love 住家菜! Because I always need to rush against time, any 炒蛋 or 煎蛋 dishes are my routines. 韭菜煎蛋 is definitely one of my faves growing up! But, never thought of adding cornstarch to the egg mixture … Will do so next time … I saw a few times on cooking shows in which the chef did this to his 蝦仁炒蛋 …
Thanks for sharing! =)
Chives is among my favorite herbs, your omelette is very tasty!
Murasaki: Yes, I think so. You can find my recipe for fried dumpling which I used chives too.
Doria: Thank you. Maybe one day you'll know how to add it in your blog.
C'est une belle omelette que j'apprécie beaucoup avec la ciboulette.

Kristy: huh? Really? hahaa….no wonder Full Timed Housefly said cannot eat this often…hihi..
You're welcome, Rachel 🙂
Mysweetkitchen: Thank you 🙂
These are garlic chives right? They are very common in Japan and I have never seen them in Europe yet. I like to put these in my Beijing dumplings so am sad I can't find them here.
My hubby love this dish very much, but i normally fried without the ham, got to this out next time..
Congratulation for all the awards and
thanks for the award dear..^_^
You know what! The elderly told me that chives is more or less like vigra! hahaha….. You know what I mean! Oooo… I'm bad! haha….
Like your ideas of combination menu. 🙂 Delicious!
Btw Ancoo, can i have your email add pls. Thanks.
Thank you so much for coming here. You can pick anything here and please visit often 😀
Chris: mmmm…this is really good provided that you like to eat chives.
Michelle, Jane & Sze Sze, Sherleen :谢谢你们 *-*
Padhu, SIS, Tina: Thanks!
CBL: hehee…I also think that I should the chives shorter.
Sophia: With corn flour & water will make the omelette thickens a little, soft and tender.
Your omelette looks delicious!
I like to eat chives, esp Gu Cai Kueh. hehe.
My mum also cooks this dish, usually serve with porridge but she doesn't add ham and she cuts the chives shorter. 🙂
Corn flour? Interesting! Is that to thicken the omelete up?
Congrats on the awards! 😀
Really very tempting and delicious….
It looks really good…
You're a great blogger, all awards are well deserved. Your chive cake looks oh-so yummy!!! And I want that yam cake for dessert! So unique and beautiful!
o… a simple and nice recipe.
Mmmm, omelette looks yummy, i like it too.

& thank you for the Mama Award.:)
yum yum …. this omelette looks good.
Sarah: Thank you 🙂
Pigpigscorner: You'll get a soft and tender omelette after adding corn flour and you need to cook the chives well for an extra few minutes.
Kothiyavunu: Thank you for your compliment.
Peachkins: Right, can have this anytime.
Little Inbox: Hahaa…we all love eggs.
Rebecca: You're welcome 🙂
JW: Use a smaller pan, would be easier to do the flipping. OR another way is to invert your pan on to a big round plate and push the omelette back to the pan.
Cooking Gallery: I also always fried eggs with prawns.
Palidor: This is not bad by adding ham into it.
