Thai Omelette - khai jiaw, ไข่เจียว
For four people :
Set your rice cooker to cook 2 cups of rice.
Set aside 8 eggs.
You'll need two mixing bowls, in one chop and toss the spices...
2 green onions
1 bouquet of coriander leaves (cilantro)
5 large cloves of garlic (pressed if you like it hotter)
Sri Racha or your favorite chili paste or Thai red pepper
about 5 mini scoops (2.5 tsp / càc) should be moderately hot
shrimp; cooked, cleaned and ready to eat
salt and pepper to taste
In another mixing bowl whisk together one serving of eggs...
1 tbsp (càs) fish sauce
2 tsp (càc) rice flour
Whisk the eggs until frothy then add one scoop of your spices...
Pour enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of your skillet. Heat the oil on high until it starts crackling.
Pour one serving into the sizzling skillet. For those of you who love a little drama in the kitchen; hold the bowl a foot above the pan to get wild and crispy edges just like the street vendors do !
Serve piping hot, over rice.
