Background

Thinking of trying out a special omelette recipe? An asian omelette? Then, try this special 'Nyonya' dish which is common among 'peranakans'. Recreating this dish brings back lots of childhood memories. I will be sure to finish my meals fast whenever this dish is served.

Lots of ingredients needed for cooking asian dishes are unavailable in Europe. It is especially difficult to get hold of 'cincalok' (fermented tiny shrimps) like those sold in Malaysia. I had to use the Phillipines version known as 'Bagoong Alamang'. It is very much saltier than 'cincalok'. Remember when making this dish with 'Bagoong Alamang', lessen the amount of salt. Try this omelette. It is different from the norm!
