Peppered Broccoli omelette with Oriental flavours…..

I’m so sorry for not being able  to post anything since the past week… Been caught up with moving… packing & unpacking… I’m sure you know how hectic & tiring the whole process is..

To make my blog more interactive & fun I decided to have small contests on my Facebook page for the fans every month..  I have named it KPCC (Keli Paan Cooking Challenge,.. I should come up with a better name :)… I know it sounds so clichéd like those reality shows running on TV). For the details of this contest, check out the page – KPCC. This recipe was the first contest recipe I posted..  Since it was the first challenge, I gave all a weeks time to try out the recipe & post pictures.. The best picture was selected by me.. The winner decides the next recipe & selects the winner….

Peppered Broccoli omelette with Oriental flavours.....

Like I have mentioned earlier.. I love trying out different omelette’s.. while I was experimenting.. I ended up burning this omelette a little as I was multitasking & the omelette cooking on the stove just slipped out of my mind.. & I did not want to post this recipe with the pictures that I had clicked with that omelette. That’s when I thought why not start a challenge to engage fans of Keli Paan by reversing the process.. I always post the recipe & the pics.. & tempt people with the pictures to try out the recipe.. So this time why not ask people to post pictures by giving them just the recipe.. Let their creative juices flow out.. Make it interesting.. 🙂 Teach & learn new recipe’s is the motive..  everybody wins in one way or the other..  !

Ingredients: (Serves 1)             Preparation Time: 10 mins
Eggs – 3
Red/yellow/green Pepper – 1/4 of a small-sized one, finely chopped
Broccoli – one cluster from it, finely chopped
Garlic – 2 medium-sized cloves, finely chopped
Spring onions – 2 whole, finely chopped
Chilli flakes – as per taste
Ground black pepper – as per taste
Light Soy sauce – 1 tsp
Hoisen Sauce (optional) – 1 tsp
Toasted Sesame oil/ any cooking oil of your choice – half a tsp
Salt to taste

Into a mixing bowl, break the eggs & beat them well. Next mix salt, chilli flakes with the chopped veggies & garlic, transfer them to the bowl with eggs, mix well.

Heat oil in a frying pan set to medium heat. Meanwhile when the pan is getting heated up add the hoisen sauce & soy sauce to the egg & veggie mixture. Mix well.

Pour the mixture into the frying pan & evenly spread the veggies around if they are concentrated in one region. Reduce heat to low. Cover & cook for 2 minutes. Remove the lid & add some crushed black pepper around the omelette. Cover & cook till the top is cooked as well. I don’t flip the omelette, you can if you wish to.

That’s it.. & its ready.. 🙂

The peppers add a nice crunchy sweet flavour.. & the soy sauce, the hoisen sauce add the oriental touch to this omelette.. & the broccoli blends in so well.. It is such an incredible way to make your family eat broccoli.. they would never know it exists in this omelette, since it is finely chopped.. 🙂

    1. I never had issues with the omelette becoming hard because I use 18-20 cm frying pan & always make omelettes with 2 or 3 eggs.. so if you cook a thick omelette on high flame the underside burns quickly.

      For a single egg omelette high flame is always better.. 🙂
