Omelet with Shrimp – Khai jiew gung sab

Omelet or Khai-Jiew is the most basic food in Thai household. And it is one of the first few things to learn in cooking Thai food. However we can play a little with our fantasy here, because we can add different things into this omelet e. g. Onion, chili, tomato, mince meat. This dish is good for children.
