Thai-Style Omelette

Thai-Style Omelette (khai jiaw, ????????) is a common snack to eat on the street or a quick breakfast or lunch. It’s usually eaten as a one-dish meal or snack over rice, and not eaten as part of a large family-style meal. It’s very easy to make and goes really well with Sri Racha chili sauce.



  1. Add the oil to the pan on high heat. Wait until the oil is dancing around in the pan and almost smoking.
  2. Crack the egg into a bowl. Add the fish sauce and pepper, and whisk with a fork until mixed and frothy.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the oil at a slowish rate, so that it’s a stream of egg hitting the hot oil.
  4. Cook until lightly browned. Flip and cook the other side until browned as well. About 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove and serve over rice. Garnish with cilantro (optional) and serve with Sri Racha sauce.
