Stuffed omelette fried rice or simply known as nasi pattaya is a dish made by covering or wrapping the fried rice with a thin layer of egg omelette. This dish is commonly available at the Malay or Mamak stalls (stalls that are run by Indian Muslims). Recently, I watched an episode of ‘The Return of Superman’ where a dad was trying to cook the omelette rice but he was struggling so hard particularly in flipping the omelette onto a plate. Never did I know that I would also struggle so much in flipping the omelette until I experienced it myself this morning.
With the leftover rice, this dish is just the perfect dish that you can whip up for your family especially your kids. With the tomato-flavoured fried rice and soft omelette, it is definitely a dish that you wouldn’t want to miss.
