Recipe for Simple Omelette
Source: Hawker’s Fair Simplified cookbook （六十道轻松易煮大牌档菜）
Serve: 3 – 4 persons
4 medium-sized eggs
1 medium-sized onion (julienne)
70g mock char siew/ vegetarian barbecue pork (julienne) (N1)
30g carrots (julienne)
30g red capsicums (julienne)
3 tbsp shredded spring onions
2 tsp light soy sauce
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp water
Dash of pepper
- Crack eggs into a bowl. Add in seasonings. Lightly beat with a fork/ chopstick. Set aside.
- Heat up 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan (N2). Sauté onion until soft. Add in barbecue pork, carrots and red capsicums. Stir-fry lightly. Add a little bit of water if necessary.
- Spread the stir-fried ingredients evenly on the frying pan and add in spring onions on top.
- Pour in beaten egg into the pan to fully cover the ingredients. Do not stir. Cover with a lid and cook at low heat for 5 minutes or until the base is set and the top is slightly dry.
- To cook the top of the omelette, carefully slide the omelette on a large plate. Hold the plate on one hand and the frying pan on the other hand. Then flip the plate over the frying pan in a quick motion. Then continue to cook for another 2 minutes, or until the top is set.
- Carefully remove the omelette from the pan and place on a large serving plate. Leave to cool slightly before cutting it into 8 wedges and serve.
- You can substitute vegetarian barbecue pork with normal barbecue pork or ham.
- I used 26cm non-stick frying pan.
- You can have a tasty twist for this omelette by adding/ substituting the ingredients with mushrooms, sausages, lean bacon, cooked chicken, cooked shrimps, cooked potato, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and even red chili if you like spicy food. The combination is up to your own preference.
