Gaeng Jeud Khai Nam (Omelette Soup)

Thai omelette soup aka gaeng jeud khai nam is basically ‘chicken soup’ for Thai people. You can whip up this dish in less than 30 minutes and only need one Thai bit to make it – fish sauce. That’s right! Easy and effortlessly. I love it with rice aanndd bird’s eye chilies with soy sauce on the side!


Level: Easy

Ingredients as shown on the right side column of the picture.

Method: In a boiling stock/water, put in the carrots and pork balls and boil over lower heat. Season soup with either fish sauce or salt. After 2 minutes, by this time the pork balls will float to surface, add egg tofu/Japanese tofu. After 1 minute, remove from heat and stir in spring onion and cut omelette. Garnish with cilantro leaves and fried garlic just before serving.
