About this recipe: This typical breakfast dish is very fast to prepare and a good source of protein in the morning. We eat this omelet with plain rice porridge for a healthy, satisfying start to our day. (Of course it is perfectly acceptable and normal to eat this dish for dinner as well.)

Toi Bangkok (Krung Thep Maha Nakhon), Thailand

Serves: 2 

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 small onion, sliced thinly
  • couple splashes of Maggi seasoning sauce, fish sauce or salt
  • 1 splash of water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients except for the oil. Stir with chopsticks or a fork to scramble everything well.
  2. In a wok or a frying pan heat the oil over high heat. Pour the egg mixture in. If the oil is properly hot it will splatter a bit and the eggs will start to puff up. Use a utensil to scramble the eggs in the middle a little bit to help cook the omelet faster.
  3. After a minute or two, when the bottom side is golden brown, turn the omelet and let the other side brown too.
  4. Serve cut up or not with a few other dishes and a steaming hot bowl of rice porridge.
