How to make omelette

  • Mix together with salt and turmeric.
  • Break the eggs to the bowl and check for shells.
  • Beat the eggs until frothy.
  • Add oil to a pan and heat it on a medium flame. Do not let the pan turn very hot, it will brown the omelette without cooking well.
  • Pour the egg mixture, allow to cook until set on a medium flame.
  • When the base firms up, flip it to the other side and cook till done. Sprinkle crushed pepper or chilli powder if you like.
  • Serve egg omelette hot with rice, roti or bread.


You can make an omelette even in one tsp oil. To keep away the egg smell, use a good amount of oil. Place it on an absorbent tissue if you don’t really want to consume much oil.

for mixing salt uniformly before adding onions and veggies pour a teaspoon of water and mix the salt int it so that it dissolves and would be consistent. Also cook the omelette with lid on to get a nice fluffy omelette
