In Cantonese, these mini egg omelette pouches are called Hor Pow Tan, which means egg purse, because they resemble small coin purses that we used to carry as kids. You can adjust the size of the purses to make them child bite-sized – not only do they look cute, these little omelette pouches are full of “treasure” inside which will entice them to eat heartily. This is a super easy and fast dish to do, with minimal ingredients, especially if you are running out of time and ideas for tonight’s dinner!
