This type of Thai-style omelet features multiple soft inner layers and crispy edges. It's made of very few simple ingredients and, though some attention is needed when it comes to technique, the overall process is very quick and easy. Lots of smoking hot oil is necessary in ensuring success.

Note: Serve Khai Jiao on top of steamed jasmine rice. You can also guild the lily by drizzling some Thai sriracha sauce on top.
