Nasi Pattaya


Despite its Thai sounding name, Nasi Pattaya is Malaysian.  It is a simple fried rice in omelet parcel; available at Malay hawker stalls.

Cooking Method

Heat a little oil in wok and sauté sliced shallots and garlic until fragrant.  Add the chicken and carrots and stir-fry until cooked.

Add the peas and cooked rice and mix well.  Season with soy sauce, ketchup and salt and pepper according to taste.  Continue to stir until rice is completely mixed and heated through.  Set aside.

For the omelet: Lightly beat the eggs and season with a pinch of salt.  Heat a pan with a little oil.  Pour in eggs and swirl the pan by the handle to make a thin omelet.  Let the omelet cook and brown at the bottom.

Once the omelet is done, place the fried rice in the center of the omelet and spread it accordingly.  Fold the edges into an envelope shape, making sure to overlap the parcel a bit.  Carefully flip the omelet onto a serving plate.  Drizzle ketchup or chili sauce over the top.
