Crispy Fried Egg

This recipe comes with a YouTube video (see next paragraph).

Crispy fried egg is basically a fried egg with crispy edges. I like mine with a runny yolk. This form of fried egg is popular in Thai cuisine, and sometimes seen in our local nasi lemak or economical bee hoon.

To achieve the perfect crispy fried egg, you are are basically deep-frying the egg, so be prepared for a violent but controlled splattering of oil (you have been warned). For a runny yolk, the timing needs to be precise and brief. There’s much more leeway if you are after a solid yolk. Here’s a short video.

  1. Woah…violent splattering of oil ah! Hahaha, you control it well. :) Seems the oil needs to be hot too.

    I love fried egg with runny yolk. I do that quite often. Typically, my edges turned out not as crispy (and brown) as yours, but I am contented with runny yolk.

    P.S Read in instagram that you just recovered from a cold/flu. Hope you are ok. Take care.

    • Thanks dear, I’m better now. In the midst of recuperating from a 100-day cough XD

      I know what you mean. I only do my fried egg this way when I have the mood to cook or a serious craving to satisfy .. But runny yolk, is a MUST :)

  2. May I know what kind of pan you are using? Korean pan? Looks interesting.

  3. I love this style of fried egg and yes that splattering is scary but the reward is awesome.

  4. Best of both worlds: crispy aromatic whites and runny oozy yolk.

  5. That’s a perfect crisp sunny sideup!
