Thai Fried Egg (Kai Dao)

Thai Fried Egg (Kai Dao)

Thai Fried Egg (Kai Dao) is usually served as a side dish along with stir-fries, soups, curries, or steamed rice, or on its own.


  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

Steamed Jasmine rice for serving

Prik Nahm Pla for seasoning


COOKING TIME :  5minutes




  1. Heat the cooking oil in a wok (or a shallow pan for frying) over medium-high heat.

  2. Once the oil is hot, crack an egg into the middle of the wok.

  3. Use a spatula to baste the hot oil over the egg. Do this for 1-2minutes or until the egg forms a crispy golden edge (or until the yolk is cooked to your preferred liking).

  4. Remove the egg from the wok. Drain on a cooling rack or paper towel and serve with steamed Jasmine rice and Prik Nahm Pla.
