Chiva-Som, which is a wellness spa in Thailand, has some of the best food I have ever eaten. I am probably the only person who visited there and came back obsessed with the food versus the wellness activities.

I use the Chivasom cookbook frequently to recreate some of the magic of their cuisine.

Here is a recent recipe I tried which was really good.



Serves 6


6 eggs, beaten

1 tbsp sliced spring onions

4 garlic cloves

9 shallots/ or 2 medium onions, sliced thin

1 ½ lbs chicken breast, ground

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp dark soya sauce

2 tbsp honey

1 medium tomato, seeded and diced

1 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped

Pepper to taste

To Prepare Omlettes:

• To make smooth egg mixture, beat eggs and strain through a sieve to remove unwanted lumps.

• Mix beaten eggs with chopped spring onions and some 2-3 tbsp of cilantro.

• In a heated 8” non stick frying pan. add a little oil.

• Pour in about a teeth ( or a small ladleful) of egg mixture.

• Pour the egg mixture into a non stick pan over a low heat and swirl the pan to make a thin egg sheet.

• Immediately tilt the pan to spread the egg into a thin, even layer over the base.

• Keep an eye on the edges of the omelet, as soon as it becomes pale, flip it and cook on the other side.

• Cook over a medium heat until the omelet has just set and the underside is golden.

• Repeat his until all the batter is used up.

• This should make about twelve omelets.

To Prepare Filling:

• Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wok.

• Add garlic and shallots and cook over medium heat until soft.

• Add chicken and cook for 8 -10 minutes, stirring frequently.

• Stir in honey, both soy sauces and tomatoes.

• Simmer over low heat until slightly thickened.

• Mix in the fresh cilantro leaves and cook until they just wilt.

• Set aside

Making the rolls:

• Spoon stuffing into each omelet and roll into a cylinder similar to a spring roll and serve.
