Oyster omelette

Oyster omelette (耗煎) – There’s very few hawker food fans who have not tried this before. In this video we attempt our own version of this fan favourite!
You gotta know that in creating this dish at home, patience is the key for the crispy batter as most stoves at home won’t be able to get hot enough like the ones used by the hawkers. Get yourself 10 large, fresh oysters to add that freshness to the crispy batter that will have that ooomph! Take note do not overcook the oysters, they will taste dry instead of being juicy with the full ocean taste!
Topping this off, consume your freshly cooked omelette with zesty and spicy vinegar chilli sauce. You won’t regret trying this dish. Happy cooking!
