This dish is a traditional Asian dish. Not many people make this anymore :( Please pass this on…

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 3 handful (about 2 cups ) fresh basil (just the leaves)
  • 2 x (60gm) Eggs
  • 1-2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Rice bran oil


  1. In a bowl, mix basil leaves and eggs. You should barely see the egg as the basil overwhelms the mixture, But I can assure you, the more basil you put into this recipe the better the taste!
  2. Add in soysauce. 1 or 2 teaspoon depending if you are going to eat it on its own or with rice. If you are having it on its own, I suggest less soy sauce.
  3. Heat rice bran oil in a wok or non-stick frying pan. Pour the egg mixture into the wok and grill. The dish is done when the egg is brownish (See picture)


This dish is perfect with rice. Feel free to eat it with toast as brekkie :)
