CRISPY FRIED EGG (KAI DAO)

PREP TIME

1 minutes
COOK TIME

5 minutes
SERVES

Makes 1 egg
Ingredients

1 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

Steps
Step 1

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok (or a shallow pan for frying) over medium-high heat until it gives off a few wisps of smoke.

Step 2

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

Step 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).

Step 4

Remove the egg from the wok. Drain on a cooling rack or paper towel and serve.
