Carrot Egg Omelette

  1. Prepare 1 small carrot. Peel it and grate it into thin shreds.
  2. In a bowl, beat in 3 large eggs. Also season with salt, black pepper and 2 tsp water. Add in chopped spring onion. Stir well.
  3. Heat a pan, add in 1 tsp oil. Fry the carrot for 2-3 mins till carrots turn softened. season with a little salt.
  4. Spread carrot evenly in pan. Gently pour the egg in.
  5. Turn to low heat and shake the pan to let the egg spread evenly. When the bottom turns golden. Flip it over. I have to say I’m terrible at this. I broke it. It was supposed to be a perfect round shape. Well, life can be hard sometimes. Deal with it.
  6. Fry the other side for about 2 mins. Ready to serve.

Carrot adds sweetness to the egg. Very nice.

Spinach Omelette

I wanted to try something beside scrambled egg. It’s a really easy dish. All you need are spinach, eggs, cheese, salt, black pepper and oil.

1. Remove root of spinach. Wash them clean and drain.

2. Cut spinach into small pieces. Better be small, cos mine was too long, not very easy to cut.

3. Beat eggs in a bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Also sprinkle in some cheese.

4. Heat a pan. A small Non sticky pan is better. Add in some oil. Stir fry spinach first. Spinach juice will come out, pour it out. Separate spinach a bit.

5. Pour egg & cheese mixture in. Cover the pan with lid. When the eggs get solidified. Turn off the heat.

6. Place a big plate over the pan. Make the pan upside down to let the omelette out.

You can cut it into smaller pieces before serving .

Omelette Fried Rice

I wanted to try this dish for a long time.

To make fried rice:

1. Cut 1 chicken breast, 1 small carrot and 1/2 onion into small dice.

2. Heat a little oil in the pan. Add in chicken breast. Stir fry till white.

3. Add in onion and carrot. Sauté till onion turns brown.

4. Push all the ingredients to one end of the pan. At the other end, add in 2 tablespoon tomato sauce, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp soy sauce. Mix well.

5. Mix sauce with chicken, carrot and onion. Stir fry evenly.

6. Put in cooked rice or leftover rice. Stir fry to let rice be evenly coated with sauce. Season with salt and black pepper.

7. Use a spoon to make fried rice into oval shape in the middle of one plate.

To make omelette:

1. Beat 3 eggs in a bowl.

2. Add in 2 tablespoon milk and 1 tsp light soy sauce. Mix them well.

3. Brush pan with oil and pour out the excess. Test the pan with chopsticks. Chopstick dip in beaten egg, and slightly draw a line in the pan. If the egg line immediately solidify then the pan is ready.

4. Pour egg into pan. Stir with chopsticks. When the egg turns to be half cooked, slightly push egg to the end of the pan.

5. Use the chopsticks and spatula to gently turn the oval omelette over. Heat the edge a bit to make omelette sealed.

6. Gently place omelette over fried rice.

And the last is also the best part of this dish: use a knife to cut the omelette open.
