Brunch-O-melette

Brunch-O-melette

Omelette is such a comfort food, quick to make and easy to fix on lazy, starving times of day or night and most popular among bachelors/college students. Eggs are really very easy to handle specially while making omelettes, scrambled eggs, anda bhurji, half-fry, double-fry etc etc... I remember during my MBA-hostel days in Pune, we used to buy dozens of eggs and finish within a day or two consuming all at the "Anda-Party". The most wonderful thing about making omelette is you can make it plain simple or make it extravaganza by stirring any veggies, herbs, cheese and Viola! its ready within minutes.

I learned from Racheal Ray's 30 minute meals that we can do frittata by adding all our favorite veggies and cheese. Though frittata is double sided-baked omelette under the broiler. I drafted some of the ingredients from that and cooked it in a medium pan/tava. Naming my version as 'Brunch-O-melette' as this is very filling.

  3. Add the shallots, red bell pepper, basil, parsley, parmesan cheese, chicken pieces, and mix well.
  4. Spray the pan/tava with oil and pour the entire content, cook on each side for 4 mins and your Bunch-O-melette is ready.
  5. Serve it with your favorite bread and garnish it with parsley and feta cheese.
  6. We had our Brunch-O-melette with a glass of 100% carrot juice.

Thanks for sharing about Botlhouse Juice.

mona said...

Hi Padma ! Yup, you are so right :-) My hubby doesnt know to cook anything except make an omelette and fry papad ! Believe me !! Omelettes are among those which almost everyone can prepare in a 100 different ways. Talking about juices, i have tried many natural juices, but i didnt seem to like any, they were all 'kadwa' or a bit 'bad' in taste. I will try this carrot juice and see if i like it. Thanks for letting us know about it. See ya :-)
