Pork Omelet

Pork Omelet

This "omelet" made with minced pork is a common accompaniment to many Thai meals. In Thai, it's called Kai Geeo Moo Sup. Its mild taste helps to balance a meal where many of the other dishes are quite spicy. You may wish to use a skillet instead of a wok to cook this recipe, since that will make it easier to make the omelette into a thin flat disc. It should be about the size of a dinner plate and about the thickness of your finger.

Eggs

Eggs have a somewhat unusual place in Thai food. At the curry stall, they’re most likely to appear fried ‘sunny-side up’ as an optional add-on to your rice and curry selection. As a westerner, especially an American, I had always thought of fried eggs as strictly a breakfast dish. But in Thailand they’re a common addition to rice dishes eaten for lunch or dinner.
