Stuffed omelette....

Egg is a very healthy breakfast... atleast I consider it so. I feel that it has so much of goodness filled in it that if it is a part of my breakfast I feel a kick-start for the day. Eating anything the same way ever will make you sick of it. So the best is to try variations. In that list goes in this recipe which is a good alteration. We love to eat this - both being healthy and keeps your filled for quite a while

Adding pepper/capsicum to omelette gives it a fresh taste. Soft omelette on the outside a s slight veggie crunch on the inside makes this very special. You will sure love this if you love capsicum

Serves... 1 person
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Egg - 1 or 2
Capsicum - 1 medium
Onion - 1 
Besan / Gram Flour - 1 tbspn
Oil - 1 1/2 tbspn
Pepper to taste
Salt taste

Here is the stir....
  • Heat a pan and add a tbspn of oil to it. Thinly slice capsicum and onion. Add this to the pan. Sprinkle little salt and pepper on it
  • Saute onion and capsicum for just a minute or little more. We want them to get a little but still have the crunch retained
  • Meanwhile break egg into a bowl. Add the besan and little salt to it. Whisk it together to remove any besan lumps. The mixture will look a little frothy and thick

  • Heat  a griddle and add little oil to it. Pour the egg mixture in it
  • Put the capsicum and onion mixture on one half of the omelette
  • Cook it covered for a minute on low flame
  • Other way is to flip the omelette immediately as soon as you pour it on the pan .. i.e. as soon as the egg is slightly cooked (very soft) just enough to handle the flip. Then add the capsicum. Each of us prefer different methods. So in our house we make both kinds
  • When the egg looks cooked fold over to make it look like a semi-circle. Press it gently to stick it together
  • Transfer it to a serving plate and serve hot. Enjoy your simple breakfast

  • You can keep the omelette soft like I prefer. My H wants it a little brown to get his perfect taste so I give it a some extra seconds on the stove
  • Dont overcook the vegetables. They taste best when they have a little crunch in them
