Crispy omelette or Thai style omelette is one of the favourite egg dishes in every household. All you need to do is beat the eggs, season with fish sauce, soy sauce and pepper and fry in hot until the edges crisp up. Ingredients can be added according to availability and personal preference and common additions are spring onions, coriander, chili, shallots, minced pork and shrimp.
There is no clear evidence as to when or where exactly the omelette was first made, but it is speculated to be around the time when humans first mastered cooking with oil. May families kept their own chickens in the past so eggs were very easy to come by. Western omelettes and Thai style omelettes differ in a few ways; The Western version is cooked over low heat and remains yellow and runny on the inside, whilst the Thai version is cooked over a more powerful gas heat which causes it to puff and crisp up around the edges while remaining fluffy inside.
