  • 1 block soft or medium tofu cut into small cubes or roughly chopped them
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup bean sprouts blanched
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 Tbsp green onion finely chopped



Preparing the sauce:

  • Place the tamarind paste with hot water and leave it for 5 minutes. Smash it with the back of the spoon and then discard the solid.  Mix all the ingredients for the sauce together. Set aside
    Peanut dressing

If making large omelettes:

  • Heat oil in a 8-inch non-stick pan. Pour in 1/3 of the egg and tofu mixture and fry until golden brown and dry on both sides, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Don't worry if you don't make a perfect flip. You can use your spatula to cut it into half and flip if you can't flip the whole thing at once

If making with egg rings:

  • Heat oil in a large non-stick pan, about 10-12 inch. Place the egg rings there and brush with some oil. Let them heat up so the eggs won't stick to the rings. Scoop in the egg and tofu mixture all the way to the top. Let them cook until the bottom have settled and golden brown
