When you dropped the egg shell. I thought it is part of the recipe!

peakarach says:

That's Lao Khua Kai, ( fried egg ), original not Thai omelet. Lol. Thai Omelet, Vietnamese Omelet, Cambodian Omelet is Lao Omelet original.

when i was a kid my mom used to make this for breakfast but i never knew it had a name or its significance to thai culture (i'm only half thai and grew up in america and never learned how to speak thai so that might have played a role in my ignorance). but this was one of my favorite breakfast foods of all time. my mom would put onions in the eggs as well and i grew to love that flavor combo.

Kevin Go says:

I love this so much since learning but made my own version by adding half a teaspoon of sugar for every egg and sesame oil. I do the deep fried version.

MadameWolf says:

Pailin I'm going to Bangkok next week and I'd like to know where to source Thai cookware/tools where also locals do ? Like wok and the one you're using and big mortar & pestle for salad? I hope you could help me🙏

towfique iftekhar says:

paiilin I m from bangladesh…. but i try all of your recepie… i really get that thai taste here in my country

mehmet iskenderoğlu says:

you talk too much

キタ キタ says:

The 2nd omellete is the typical Filipino kids Favorite Not Deep Friy and as a kid b i already cook like that… and just learned adding tomato and onions from my Spanish Grand Father with Salt and Pepper. And now from you i will try add Patis or fish sauce.

Hex says:

The second method is how I've always made an omelette. Also, I added a pinch of sugar and msg.

Angel Ly says:

Nice dish but if it were me cooking on Saturday morning I'ld stay away from fish sauce it's much too strong for me instead I would put MSG. To kick the egg flavor to another planet and if you don't trust me plz cook one egg without and with it …….flavor flav👍
