It would be interesting to trace the origin and metamorphoses, however, today I will stick to only one omelet recipe that makes me a complete person even amidst the surrounding incompleteness. And if you forget the rhetoric, egg makes contribution to a healthy diet as well.
3 eggs, separated
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly chopped green coriander leaves, onions, chilies (optional)
Tomatoes, capsicum cubed (optional)
1 tablespoon butter/ white oil
1/4 cup shredded cheese (optional)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, salt, pepper, and other ingredients.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy. Gently blend the whites into the yolk mixture.
Add the chopped coriander leaves and onion cubes.
Melt the butter/oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook, without stirring, until the eggs begin to set but are still slightly runny in the center.
Sprinkle the cheese. (optional)
Fold the omelet over, forming a half-moon slowly. Cook until set.
