Nyonya Cincalok Omelet (Hay Ya Kay Nui) 虾酱煎蛋

Cincalok  ~  A typical and popular  Melaka products  made from shrimps. 
Adding  cincalok and kaffir leaves  to simple fried eggs  will definitely enhance the  dish for that extra ordinary taste to tempt everyone to go for more. 

This was prepared 2 days ago, my eldest daughter just love the aroma of the kaffir leaves.

Recipe source from Northern And Southern Nyonya Cuisine by Chef Ricky Ng
I have made some amendments to the origin recipe.
