For anyone who's never been near a frying pan and uses the kitchen implements for carpentry work, this recipe should be mighty useful.
Take 2 eggs.
Throw the shells away. Or turn them into fertilizer for your plants.
Chop one green chilli into itsy bitsy pieces.
Do the same for a small onion, tomato and capsicum.
Beat the eggs with a whisk / spoon / egg-beater for say 2 minutes.
Add a dash of salt, the green chilli, tomato and onion bits and mix.
Put a heavy bottomed pan or nonstick pan on the hob. Heat a little oil / ghee in it.
Once hot, pour this egg mixture into the pan so it spreads. Aim for a circular shape.
After a few minutes, the mixture in the pan will solidify and sizzle.
Flip it with a spatula. Let the other side also cook if you like it well-cooked.
Flip it into a plate.
Lo and behold, your omelette is ready!
There are other variations to this theme. This is one method.
Add a little milk to the egg while beating, to make a fluffy omelette.
- If you are wondering how to break an egg, you can tap it around the milddle with the edge of a spoon, so the shell splits more neatly into 2 halves.
