Ingredients

  • Eggs – 3
  • Onion - 1
  • Spring onions - 1
  • Tomato – 1
  • Green chili - 2 tsp chopped
  • Carrot - 2 tbsp grated
  • Capsicum - 1 tbsp chopped
  • Cabbage - 1 tbsp shredded
  • Soy sauce – 1 tsp
  • Green chili sauce – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp Optional
  • Black pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – 2 tsp

Instructions

Preparation:

  • Chop onions and tomatoes finely. Very finely chop the white and green parts of the Scallion and keep them separate.
  • In a bowl mix together chopped onions, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, white part of the scallions, bell peppers, cabbage and crumble with your finger tips.
  • This is to ensure that none of them get stacked in one place while sprinkling.
  • Divide into 3 portions and keep aside. Also divide the green part of the scallions (Chives) and keep it ready.

How to make Chinese Egg Omelette:

  • In a bowl break the eggs, add turmeric powder, salt, 2-3 tbsp water, soy sauce, chili sauce, black pepper powder and whisk well till frothy with a balloon whisk.
  • Heat a frying pan or girdle and let it become warm. I eyeballed the quantity of egg mixture that I poured else use a ladle and pour the egg mixture and swirl the pan to spread around. Make sure the flame is low.
  • Sprinkle one portion of the mixed vegetables evenly all over the egg mixture. Once again sprinkle the chives on top of the vegetables.
  • Drizzle a few drops of oil all around the egg. Cover the frying pan with a lid. This will ensure that the vegetables will get cooked along with the eggs. Let it cook for a minute or 2 over low flame.
  • Once cooked, flip the omelette around and let it cook the other side as well for a minute. This time there is no need to cover with a lid and no need to drizzle oil as the eggs itself will start to leave out the fat.
  • Chinese Egg Omelette is ready.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and continue to make 2 more. Serve hot.
