“Omelette – the best dish that complements your plain porridge meal”
Onion, may seems to taste ‘awful’ to many people, especially to kids. Raw onion has pungent taste and smell to many of us. I don’t quite like to eat raw onion unless I can eat it with satay sauce (laughing). However, cooked onion is totally different spectrum here. Cooked onion, not just without its natural pungency, it tastes so pleasant with its natural sweetness. Cooked onion is soft, and very nice to eat. Since it is sweet, it should be kid-friendly dish. Children hate onion, but love sweet food. Cooked onion in omelette ill be the BEST way to make them eat some onion!
I love prata with onion, so as Omelette with Onion (chuckling)!
Omelette goes so well with onion indeed. The onion not only enhances the fragrance of the omelette dish, but also make the eggs tasted pleasantly sweet. The overall taste of this omelette dish is so robust that goes so well with both steamed white rice and hot plain porridge.
Try my recipe of this omelette with onion. Slight improved version using my little ‘trick’ of adding an extra condiment to it (winking smile). The oyster sauce! It creates extraordinary taste to the egg dish, don’t believe me, try it yourself!
Anyway, it is simple to cook! It simply like an improviser of dinner dish from whatever you could found in your refrigerator (laughing).
3 large eggs
1 small – medium yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon of light soy sauce
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
Sprinkle of sesame oil
Pinch of white pepper
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1) Break the eggs in a medium bowl. Add light sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and pepper.
2) Beat the eggs until completely mixed. Add in chopped onion. Mix well.
3) Heat a non-stick wok with oil over high fire. Pour egg mixture in wok, spread evenly by tilting the wok or use a spatula to do so. Cook for 3 min, or until the eggs are firm on the bottom with slightly runny on top. Flip eggs over with spatula (or flipper). Cook for another 2 min, or until eggs are firm and lightly browned. Serve with hot plain porridge (Check out my last post!).
Tips: In order to make this Onion n’ Omelette looks more appealing and delicious to the kids. Add some colours on it, try adding some carrot strips into the omelete.
*You may choose to slice the onion into thin rings, but remember to slice it against its lines in order to break its tissue. By doing such, it reduces the taste of pungency and claims to be sweeter in taste. So, chopped’s the safest. :)
