Recipe 64: Potato Cheese Omlette

Egg is one of my favourite ingredients to work with.


It can be had as it is or mixed with something else.


Interestingly, egg is one of those kitchen ingredients that works for both sweet and savoury dishes.


Today, I bring a recipe of an omlette.
I regard it as an upgraded version of a plain omlette that you can make on days when you are very hungry and there is no bread to accompany your egg. Or you need to serve 2-3 people and have only 2 eggs at home.


This is a basic recipe that is intended to give you can idea on how this omlette takes shape and prepared. You can master this and then go about adding more ingredients of your choice like vegetables, pre-cooked chicken, ham, salami, etc.
For, now its time for Potato Cheese Omlette!

Ingredients:

  1. 2 eggs
  2. 2 medium size potatoes
  3. 1 medium onion
  4. 2 tsp. crushed black peppercorns
  5. any cheese of your choice (grated or cut into small pieces)
  6. salt to taste
  7. vegetable oil for cooking

Method:

Beat the eggs well with some salt and pepper.
Keep aside.
Heat oil for shallow frying potatoes in a pan.
Cut the potatoes into roundels of about 1/2 inch thick.
In the hot oil, place all the potato slices in one single layer.
Flip each one when potatoes are slightly brown on one side.
Now cut thin onion slices and fry it along with the potatoes.
Ensure not to stir too much or the potato slices will break.
After the onions are translucent and browned from the edges, pour the beaten egg.
Flatten the potato, onion and egg mixture in the pan and do not stir rigorously.
Now place chopped cheese cubes or grated cheese over the egg.
Cover and cook on low flame.
No need to flip the omlette.
Egg will get cooked in the steam.
Uncover after 5 minutes.
Transfer carefully onto a plate.
Cut pizza-like slices and serve.
