Now, after 3-4 times works as omelette cook at Gracies (yes I got promoted..:p), I still confused with the term. And the people who order this fancy thing, (you can easily ordered omellete and do not need to order variety of fried egg which I did not familiar with), will usually will have a weird face when I gave them the egg, and I know it wasn't right. So, let see the Malaysian Egg VS USA egg.
Telur Dadar (Malaysian Omellete)
- Made primarily with egg that been beat slowly in the bowl. Mix with onion, peppers and salt. Cook with vegetable oil.
Telur Goreng (Fried Egg)
- Egg that cooked thoroughly until the yolk solidified.
Telur Mata Kerbau ( Bull-eye egg)
- Basically, it is "sunny side-up". Cooked only on the one side of the egg.
|Telur Mata Kerbau|
-Egg that been cooked in the cylindrical ring, mix with cheese, variety choice of meat(ham, sausage, bacon and etc), onion, peppers, olive, and many more.
- Milk are added into the egg.
- Usually cook using a cooking spray instead of oil.
|Omelette, I usually cook with less stuff in it.|
- However, there are also egg-white option, which primarily using an egg white that are already pack in a box.
|Egg White Omelette|
|Stuffed Scramble egg|
Sunny Side Up
- Fried egg that cooked only in one side only.The yolk is usually liquid and the white a bit runny.
|Sunny side up.|
-Fried egg that cooked on both side. The yolk have a thin layer (cook for a while). Most of the yolk is still liquid.
That's all that I can think about. One more thing, usually Malaysian cook using vegetable oil all the time, while American using the non-stick pan grill. It's more healthy in American way i guess. I also think of an idea to compare American breakfast and Malaysia breakfast, but just save them for later.
