  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 handful bean sprouts
  • 1 handful water spinach cut into 4 cm strips
  • 1 handful spring onion chopped

Optional Toppings

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Crushed peanuts
  • Chopped chilli or chilli flakes

Dipping Sauce

  • 1-2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 - 2 tsp sugar to your liking
  • ½ tsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp soybean oil or coconut oil


  • To make the rice flour batter, mix 1 cup flour with 1 cup of warm water and 2 tbsp of salt
  • Whisk eggs in a bowl and add 1 ladle of the batter. Mix well.
  • Heat up oil in a wok over a high head, ensuring the oil reaches all over the pan.
  • Using a ladle, spoon the mixture in the wok then pick it up and swirl to spread the mixture evenly over the entire surface.
  • Place the bean sprouts, spring onion and spinach roughly in the centre of the omelette and cover with a lid for about a minute.
  • Place more oil onto your spatula and drip around the edges of the omelette - this is a very important step to avoid sticking.
  • Using the spatula, lift the edges of the omelette and fold over the middle to create a parcel.
  • Place onto serving dish and top with chopped peanuts, chilli and fish sauce to your liking.


  • For the rice flour batter you ideally want a thin consistency not a thick batter and 2 tbsp of salt.
  • If you end up making too much of that dipping sauce, you could always make some of these tasty Crispy Thai Spring Rolls to use it all up. Jus sayin’ 😉
  • Substitute water spinach with morning glory, Chinese spinach or bok choy.
