This recipe is a true keeper. Very delicious.
I tried to follow Peng's version as closely as possible, except for the tomatoes. I split the portions to two, one to cook until it melts and the other to be added in later so that it stays as chunks. I also made it drier than hers. The rest, I followed to the dot. I trust Peng. I love her recipes, and by going to her blog, it gives me inspiration for dinner.
My pictures are not very sharp because I was lazy to bring it out to take pictures and hence, just on my breakfast table.
