    1. In a bowl, make the sauce by mixing together the cornflour slurry, soy sauce, sugar and Shaoxing wine.
    2. Heat half of the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the eggs (about 2-4 at a time), until the eggs are golden on both sides and the yolks are set.
    3. Transfer the eggs onto a serving dish. Repeat until all the eggs have been cooked.
    4. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and stir-fry the pickled chillies, ginger and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
    5. Pour in the sauce and bring to the boil. Once boiling, spoon the sauce over the eggs and garnish with spring onions.


    Pickled red chillies and Shaoxing wine can be purchased in Chinese/Oriental speciality shops.
