Nasi Goreng Pattaya (Fried Rice wrapped in Egg Omelette)

Fried Rice in Egg Omelette

One of Amir's most favourite food is fried rice wrapped in egg omelette.

Nasi goreng pattaya, is a Malaysian dish popular in road side stalls. It is prepared by literally wrapping the cooked rice in an egg omelette. It is often served with chili sauce, cucumber, or fish crackers. The name comes from a region called Pattaya, Thailand. A similar dish exists in Japan, and is called Omuraisu (from the English words omelette and rice).


2 cups of cooked rice (preferably cold rice)
1/2 cup of green peas
1 cup prawns , cleaned
2 small chillies - finely chopped
2 shallots - finely sliced
2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
2 tbsp of sweet soy sauce
2 tbsp of fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs - beaten (for omelette)


Heat up frying pan with a bit of oil. Add in shallots and garlic and stir fry until lightly brown and fragrant.
Add in prawns, peas and stir fry for 2 minutes. Make sure the vegetables is soft and the meat is cooked.
At this point add in the rice. Continue to stir fry until all ingredients are mixed through. Add in soy sauce, fish sauce, salt and pepper to taste to taste.
Fry for another 2 minutes and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
In clean non-stick pan brush a bit of oil. Make the omelette and flip it over once the bottom side is lightly brown.
Put in a bowl of the fried rice at the center of the omelet and wrap up the 4 edges and flip it over a serving plate. Slit the omelette open and serve with some cucumber/fish crackers or boiled sugar snaps.
