How do you like your eggs? Boiled, scrambled, poached, sunny side up or as an omelette? Out of all the possible ways you can make your eggs, I am sure most of you might have an egg omelette more frequently. How often do you have an egg omelette?
Me being a vegetarian, I have an egg quite often, as it my main source of protein. Now who doesn't know the benefits of having eggs. I have at least 5 eggs in a week with 3 yolks. There are debates on whether the yolk is good or bad and how often it should be consumed. I think the 3 yolks wouldn't shoot up my cholesterol but provide me some essential B-complex vitamins.
But hell yeah, I do get bored of having the same old omelette. So I like to spice it up sometimes. Spicing it up does not mean turning it into junk food. My way of spicing up my omelette is making it more healthy. And how I do it, is what this post is all about.
Stuffed Egg Omelette!!
For the stuffing, all you need to do is saute some finely chopped onions, potatoes, green/yellow/orange/red peppers, garlic, green chilies and grated carrots in a few drops of oil. You can add salt, pepper and a pinch of coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala powder for taste.
Beat the eggs with few drops of milk and a pinch of salt and pour on a non-stick pan (you don't need to add any more oil if you use the same pan).
After a few seconds, add the stuffing on half of the omelette and fold the other half over it. You may also add some shredded cheese. Make sure to do this while the omelette is still not cooked all the way through and you can still see the gooey eggs!
This helps to glue the edges together and the stuffing and the eggs can cook in the steam.
It is advised not to over cook eggs to retain most of the nutrients.
Here are a few pics of my omelette I prepared for last night's dinner, served with some cool tomato and sweet onion salad and toasted sandwich bread.
This is a very healthy way of having your eggs. Also an amazing way to get kids have all those veggies!
And trust me, it tastes YUMMY!! Go try it!!
