PHO OMELETTE – Phở chiên trứng

I have created this dish for breakfast making use of the left-over pho noodles in the refrigerator. It came out better than I expected: crispy, fragrant and tasty. To balance out the greasiness, I added some picked carrot and daikon (It’s great to have this in the refrigerator anytime) and voila, brilliant combination! It relates to a Southern Chinese-influenced snack called “bột chiên” (Fried rice flour cakes with eggs) which is one of my favorites. To fry the noodles, too little oil is not enough to make it crispy, too much oil might make it soggy. So pour vegetable oil just enough to cover the base of the pan.

This recipe is in my “Simply Pho” Cookbook
