How to make it
- Place oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, galangal (or ginger), chilli, and shallots. Stir-fry one minute, or until fragrant.
- Add a Tbsp. water whenever the wok/pan gets too dry instead of more oil.
- Add tofu or meat, carrot, shiitake mushrooms, cabbage, and spring onions.
- As you stir-fry, add the lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, and oyster sauce. Stir-fry about 1 minute.
- Push ingredients to the side of the wok or pan, and crack in the egg. Stir-fry the egg quickly, breaking the yolk. Mix well. Add the bean sprouts and stir-fry briefly . Remove from heat.
- Cut off the stem part of the iceburg lettuce so it's easier to separate the leaves.
- Now place the lettuce, the sir-fried filling, and the toppings on your table, allowing family or guests to make their own wraps..
- Top with a sprinkling of fresh basil and peanuts. Then wrap it up and eat.
- (For those who like it extra spicy, Thai chilli sauce can be added as another topping.)
