"This is a journey of my life since I was all of 12 yrs when I started my hand in cooking to now with displays of my learning and creations of recipes from around the world. My inspiration and role model has always been my Mum who has always created dishes from around the world and excellently well. I do not believe I would ever match to her culinary skills. I remember the times she could cook and bake almost 4-5 dishes in one go without ever letting one go under cooked or burnt! I was born and raised in Dubai, UAE and recently moved to India for family reasons. Kitchenette just means that over the decades, my kitchen has changed from that of my mum's to my uncle and aunt's, to my home in UAE and now in India. Pala't'te, describes both global cuisines ('Palatte'-diverse flavours) and pleasing diverse 'Palates'."

Hubby's Breakfast Special Omelette w/Toast - Hubby's Special!!

Yes I know, I know who can't make an omelette! But ask yourself this question what is a perfect omelette? One that has the flavour, does not break and evenly cooked. Of the many omelettes I have had, I have to admit the one that caught my taste buds has been the one that my hubby Anup cooked for me. What a way to woo the wife on the first morning home after the wedding celebrations. On my lazy morning days, I normally ask him to chef the breakfast and on one such morning, he made this omelette delight. Served with toast and OJ what a way to begin the day!

Now confession time, my omelette sucks! No seriously compared to what Anup or mom makes, mine really sucks. Anup also does a neat cheese omelette. But this one is by far, the best. The technique is what makes it truly unique. I will try and share this as closely as possible without losing any details. I also will try and upload a video if possible so you can see it in action and know what I am talking about.

You need:

  • 2 large, organic eggs or farm eggs
  • 2 green chilies, diced finely
  • 1 onion, diced 
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • Toasted bread of your choice

The make:
Serves 2 adults | Preparation time: 5 minutes | Cooking time: 10 minutes

1. Heat a non-stick skillet and add the oil. Grease the skillet on all sides and pour out the excess oil in a bowl and set aside.
Tip: Remember the oil is required just enough to grease the pan. So you can reuse it in case you wish to use the egg batter in 2 batches.

2.  Add all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and whisk lightly.

3. Pour the egg mixture evenly on all sides of the skillet. Ensure the egg mixture is uniform on all sides of the skillet.

4. After about a minute, loosen the sides of the egg to allow it to be flipped after 4 more minutes of cooking.

5. Next toss the egg on the other side and press the tip of the spatula randomly on all sides of the egg surface to ensure the heat goes through egg base. 
Tip: Remember not to tear the egg in doing this process. 

6. Allow it to be cooked for 4-5 minutes and evenly undo the egg from the spatula and place on the serving plate.

7. Serve with toasted bread and OJ.

Bon Appetit!
