Super Omelette!!!

I was watching the Cooking Channel one morning and saw this recipe. I do not remember the name of the person who made it but the recipe sure made an impression.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
Eggs – 4-5 (depending size)
Finely chopped onion – ½
Finely chopped bell pepper – ½
Finely diced tomato – 1
Milk – 1 tbsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Separate whites and yolks and place in different bowls. Add milk and salt to the yolks and beat well. Whisk the egg whites till they form soft white peaks. This is one painful process if done by hand but the final result makes it all worth the effort. Once the egg whites are ready slowly fold in the beaten yolks. Use a spatula or fork and make sure you don’t deflate the whites. Heat oil in a pan (I spread it all over the pan including the sides – this will help the omelette to come out without sticking). Pour in the egg mixture, add the chopped vegetables and cover with a lid. Keep on medium heat and let it cook completely (6-7 minutes). In between the process, run a spatula through the sides of the omelette to make sure it isn’t sticking to the pan. Cover and cook till done. Sprinkle pepper and salt (if required) and serve hot.  
Note - You can mix it up with the vegetables and also, if you want smaller omelettes, that can be done too. Keep in mind that once the yolks and whites are mixed, the whites will not hold their fluffy texture for long.


  1. Super indeed! my hands were aching with all that beating. Time to invest in a hand mixer?:-)

  2. Well..its just once in a for me it is exercise for my hands.
