Directions:
Crack eggs into very, very hot oil at least 1 cm deep and deep fry till fluffy and crispy, and yolks are cooked through. Let cool slightly, then cut into rough chunks and toss with other salad ingredients. Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl, then mix with the salad ingredients and serve as main meal side dish or a refreshing lunch.


NOTE: The above dressing is used for many other salads such as Thai Beef Salad, or can be used as a dipping sauce for fish cakes or Vietnamese spring rolls or poured over grated green mango or paw paw (called Som Tum).

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
With the main ingredient of this salad being fried egg some people find it is a bit off-putting, but I urge you to try it, it is truly delicious. Fried eggs complement thai food wonderfully, and in Thailand it is very common to order a fried egg as a side accompaniment to most meals. While I have listed only the typical ingredients, you can add grated carrot, cashew nuts, mint cabbage, spring onions, cucumber, you are only limited by your imagination. I highly recommend adding the cashew nuts at least.
