Let’s Cook!

Omelette mixture:

1. Crack the eggs on the side of the

bowl + add a pinch of turmeric powder + a pinch of salt

2. With a whisk or fork beat the eggs until frothy (about 45 seconds)

3. Add milk + beat again to incorporate (optional)

4. Set bowl aside

5. Heat up ghee or oil in Sauté pan

• Add red onion + ginger

• Sauté for 30 seconds while stirring occasionally

• Remove from heat + add to egg

mixture

Omelette:

1. Place sauté pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium/ high

2. Add 1 tablespoon of oil or ghee + swirl around the pan to heat it up

3. Add a droplet of water to insure that the pan is hot enough; it should sizzle when it’s

ready

4. Pour 1/4 of the egg mixture into hot pan + cook for 10 seconds + turn heat to medium

5. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes, use spatula to fold in half (omelette should release easily and be

golden brown on the bottom)

6. Remove from heat + let rest for 1 1/2 minutes

7. Repeat for remaining mixture (if you have two pans you can make both omelettes at the

same time!)

8. Enjoy!

To Plate

Remove omelette from pan + place onto a plate + sprinkle with salt and pepper + cilantro
