Servings 1 person

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 4 medium-sized button mushrroms sliced
  • Approx 10-12 large/medium spinach leaves roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • butter
  • 1 slice cheese
  • red chilli flakes as per taste
  • 1/3rd tsp pepper powder
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Heat a non-stick pan on medium-low heat and add 1 tsp olive oil. (You can add some butter if you're OK with the extra calories.)
  • Add chopped onion and saute for a minute.
  • Add sliced mushrooms and salt, saute till the moisture evaporates.
  • Add chopped spinach and season the mixture with some pepper powder.
  • Saute till the spinach starts to wilt. (This should take 2-3 minutes. Ensure that the mixture dries up sufficiently as moist stuffing will make the omelette soggy.)
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
  • Crack open 3 eggs in a bowl and add milk.
  • Beat the eggs using a fork or an egg whisk, and then add salt and pepper. (The more you whisk, the lighter your omelette will be.)
  • Drizzle the same pan with a little olive oil and add egg.
  • Move the egg inwards in the pan using a spatula to move runny egg toward the outer part of the pan. (See video.)
  • Sprinkle chili flakes and spread cheese on the omelette while it is still not firmly set.
  • Use a spatula to separate the omelette from the sides of the pan.
  • Place the stuffing on one half of the omelette and fold the other half over the stuffing. (Alternately, you can place the stuffing along the diameter of the omelette. And fold the omelette from one side towards its center and then similarly fold the other side.)

Notes

  • If you overcook the omelette it'll be difficult to fold it.
  • Using one of those floppy turner spatulas makes it easy to fold the omelette.
  • Folding the omelette is the tricky part and requires some practice. Don't worry if the omelette tears while trying to fold it; it'll taste great anyways. If you get it right the first time, you're a rockstar. :)
