Thai Style Omlette

Today I am going to share with you some pictures of the meal I had earlier today. It is a Thai style omlette called khanom beuang yuan. It is almost like a crepe as it is fried thin and the contents are then wrapped in the egg encasing.

It looks quite simple to make but I am sure you need to practice a lot to get this right. First, heat up the wok and add a little oil. Two eggs are beaten and then poured over the entire surface of the wok. Tilt the wok so that it is evenly spread.

Start adding the ingredients of chopped peanuts, tofu, chopped spring onions, Chinese turnips, beansprouts and grated coconut that has been coloured orange. Once this has been done fold the omlette around the ingredients so that it becomes like an envelope. Add a little more oil and then turn the envelope over to finally seal the package.

Here is a close-up of the ingredients, starting from the top and going clockwise: peanuts, tofu, grated coconuts, beansprouts, spring onions and Chinese turnips.
