In Malaysia, oyster omelet is a very popular dish. The omelet is not an ordinary egg omelet. The batter is made of tapioca (cassava) flour and rice flour. It’s an easy recipe. Here I use crab sticks for a change. It tastes awesome too. I’m sure you can also use prawns. The recipe here will make 2 big plates, enough for 4 persons if you are eating it for breakfast. In fact you can eat it any time you like.
Ingredients A (batter)
100g tapioca flour
50g rice flour
1 t sugar
dash of pepper
Mix well and leave aside for a while.
8 eggs, beaten
250 g crab sticks, cut into short lengths
1 C chopped spring onions
1/2 C chopped coriander
chili sauce (optional)
- Divide Ingredients A and B into 2 portions. Divide into 4 portions if you are using a small frying pan.
- Heat up some garlic/onion oil. Add one portion of the batter, swirl around. When it is half cooked, add half of the beaten egg on top. Drizzle some fish sauce and soya sauce on it. Sprinkle some pepper powder.
- Push the omelet to the side. Add some shallot/garlic oil, chili sauce (optional) and add in the crab sticks. Fry a little while.
- Add in half of the spring onion and coriander and some fish sauce. Mix with the crab stick.
- Push the omelet back to mix and continue to fry.
- Dish up. Add some coriander leaves to garnish.
- Enjoy with some spicy chili sauce or even sambal.
- Cook the other portion the same way.
