4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons instant chicken -- bouillon granules
8 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt

8 medium fresh medium mushrooms
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 ounces bean sprouts
8 ounces fresh shrimp
4 medium green onions

Preparation / Directions:

These are called "omelets" but they're really a foo-young variation. 1. Combine water, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce and bouillon in small saucepan. Cook over medium beat until mixture boils and thickens, about 5 minutes. 2. Combine eggs, salt and pepper in medium bowl. Beat until frothy. 3. Finely chop mushrooms. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in small skillet. Cook mushrooms in the oil for 1 minute. Stir mushrooms into egg mixture. 4. Wash and drain sprouts. Remove shells and veins from shrimp. Finely chop shrimp, 4 of the onions and celery. Mix sprouts, shrimp, chopped onions and celery into egg mixture. 5. For each omelet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in large skillet or 7-inch (18 cm) omelet pan. Cook over medium heat until hot. Pour 1/2 cup egg mixture into oil. Cook until light brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Stack omelets on serving plates. Pour warm soy sauce mixture over omelets. Garnish with sliced green onions.
