Omelet is probably one of the most cooked dishes in every Thai's home. I think it’s probably the first dish that I learned how to make when I was a kid.
Thai omelet is different from a western omelet, usually, we season the egg with the savory taste of the fish sauce (or soy sauce in some families).
There are many kinds of omelets, plain or with toppings. You pretty much can select whichever toppings you like such as vegetables (onion, chives, sweet radish, tomatoes) meat (minced pork, shrimp, ham, crab meat), etc.
Ingredients (For 2)
2 chicken eggs (or duck eggs)
30g. minced pork (can change to other meat types that you like ie. sausages, ham, minced shrimp)
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
½ tsp ground white pepper
¾ cup of vegetable oil
Coriander to sprinkle over the omelet for decoration
Crack the eggs into a bowl. Season with fish sauce, soy sauce, and ground white pepper. Whisk everything together with a fork and then add the minced pork (or other toppings that you like). Whisk everything together.
Heat the pan and then add oil to medium heat. When the oil is ready (notice that there’s a little smoke coming out from the surface.) Slowly pour the mixed egg, and use the spatula to spread the egg. Wait for a bit and put the gas to low heat. Once the egg is golden, flip the egg to another side until in golden color. Then take an egg to dry the oil on a skimmer or cooking tissue.
Put the egg on the plate. Decorate with coriander leaves. Eat with chili sauce or fish sauce with chili and rice, Thai Thai style.
