Foo Young Hai (Indonesian, Dutch)

Foo Young Hai (Indonesian, Dutch)

I could not find a lot about the history of Foo Yong Hai, but I believe it must have had traveled through a long and winding path to become the way it is now. But Nevertheless during its spread in Western Europe Foo Young Hai has gradually changed and was adapted as a more western style omelet with fillings inside, while in Canton, the standard way of cooking fried Foo Yong eggs is actually mix the ingredients (normally Cantonese BBQ pork strips and other vegetables) with the beaten egg yolk before frying. Apart from that, I was quite curious about the fillings since “hai” in Cantonese means crab. The Foo Yong Hai that I know mostly uses prawns, shrimps or chicken. Either way it’s a delicious dish. In this recipe I used chicken.
