Ingredients
  

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cabbage shredded
  • 1/3 cup each red, yellow and green bell peppers finely chopped
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a pan and saute the onions, cabbage and the bell peppers for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl and add eggs, carrots, cilantro, turmeric powder, milk, salt and pepper. Beat all the ingredients together.
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of oil in an omelet pan. Pour 3 tablespoonfuls of the beaten mixture, spreading evenly. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese evenly on top. Cook on medium-low flame for about 2 minutes, then stir the mixture a bit so that the uncooked parts roll over and get cooked.
  • When the egg is no longer runny but still gooey, fold the omelet and immediately transfer to a serving plate.
  • Repeat for the rest of the egg mixture. This recipe makes 4 omelets.

Notes

  • Don’t use more than 1 teaspoon of oil for cooking- else the edges may turn crispy.(assuming that you are using a non-stick omelet pan)
  • Always cook an omelet on low or medium-low flame to get the best texture and taste.
  • Omelet tastes best when served immediately, so cook it just before serving. The mixture can be prepared ahead and refrigerated.
