BASIC OMLETTE RECIPE | HOW TO COOK AN OMLETTE | OMLETTE RECIPE |

In cuisine,an omlette is a dish made from beaten eggs , fried with butter or oil in pan. Often, veggies like anchovies, lettuce, onion rings are used in the wrapping. But the basic version of Omlette that I have cooked today has no veggies and other things. It’s the basic version cooked with only salt and pepper powder.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • 2 Tsp Oil

1. Take two bowls. Break the eggs. Separate the egg white and yolk separately.

2. Whisk the egg white till it starts foaming. Slowly add the egg yolk. Whisk again.

3. Brush Oil in pan. Pour the egg. Fry both side.

Serve hot!!

See this is an easy recipe that can be cooked in just 10 minutes. But the whisking involves many minutes. More you can whisk, fluffier the omlette you will get. One single omlette is enough for breakfast.
