Cook a thin omelet:
Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the sugar, salt and 1 teaspoon of the water-dissolved starch. Blend them thoroughly. Coat the pan thinly with the vegetable oil, and pour the egg mixture into the pan. Spread the egg mixture evenly. When the surface firms up, flip it over and continue cooking. Then, place the egg sheet onto a plate. Cook several egg sheets likewise. After you cook all egg sheets, leave them to cool down. Then, cut them into thin stripes.

Cook the minced chicken and bamboo shoots:
Heat the vegetable oil in a small pan, and add the bamboo shoot stripes and minced chicken. Loosen the minced chicken well. Stir-fry them until the chicken turns white. Then, season them with the sugar, soy sauce and sweet sake, and continue cooking until the sauce is cooked down.
