After the trip to Bangkok, I learned that Thais have gained 11 lb. on average, compares to 20 years ago. Oh well, it seems like Thais enjoy milk, cream and cheese more and more now. I had to tell my friends I prefer Thai food over Western food. Otherwise, they would take me to pizza and spaghetti or steak place.
Although I cook Thai food at home almost every day, still, there are some dishes I can't find the right ingredients to cook with. That was why I prefer having Thai food while I was there. However, it was weird that I tend to have a stomach problem with chili. This never happened before. I couldn't stand its spiciness anymore.
Anyway, I got an idea about making omelette with sticky rice while I was watching Thai cooking with my aunts. It's kind of odd, but they go so well together. Really, you have to try them. Here's the recipe.
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup ground chicken
- 1 tbs. green curry paste
- 1/4 cup red/yellow pepper, thinly sliced
- 3 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup Thai basil, thinly sliced
- 1 tbs. fish sauce
- 3 tbs. vegetable oil
- 1 cup cooked sticky rice, roll into logs
1. Beat the eggs, then add all ingredients.
2. Heat the non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add the oil.
3. When hot, pour the egg mixture into the pan.
4. Let it set for 2-3 minutes.
5. Flip it over and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
6. Remove from the heat, place the omelette over a paper towel.
7. Place the rolled sticky rice over the omelette and roll them together.
8. Cut into 1/2" thick.
