Rice Omelette: For A Good Swift Breakfast

December 5, 2014 | By

When you have some leftover rice and you don’t know what to do with, its time for experimenting. Debasish Bhattacharya did just that and came up with a fun recipe that’s smart, quick and delicious.

Rice Omelette

Rice Omelette

It is a very simple but tasty food with protein and carbohydrate bonded together and good for a swift breakfast.

I had some left over boiled flavoured rice. Thinking about how I could make it a bit more interesting than its plain state, I hit upon an idea. I hadn’t made this earlier so it was more of a R&D. And it worked marvelously without much ado.

Ingredients:

1. Flavoured rice (I used Gobindabhog, a nice small grained rice indigenous to the eastern parts of India) – 100 g (however, any flavoured rice will do)
2. Eggs – 4
3. Ginger – 1 inches (paste)
4. Onion – 1 medium (cut into fine small pieces)
5. Green chillies – 2 (longitudinally slit and cut into small pieces)
6. Salt – Add to taste
7. Coriander leaves – a couple of sprigs (cut into small pieces)
8. Olive oil – 2-3 tbsp

Preparation:

i. Clean and wash rice and boil with adequate water to bring into smooth consistency. Keep it aside for cooling.
ii. In a mixing bowl take the rice and mash it further to have a lump-less pulp.
iii. Add 4 whole eggs to it and mix well with salt to taste.
iv. Add ginger paste, chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves and mix well.
v. Your omelette pulp is ready.

Cooking:

a. Put oil in a non-stick frying pan and put on moderate flame.
b. When oil is hot add the prepared omelette content on it, adequate for an omelette.
c. After it starts drying up, reduce flame and cover with a lead.
d. Remove lid and check whether it is done from below (a golden brown colour shows from the bottom).
e. Turn upside down with a flat wide spatula and cook for another minute or a couple of minutes till the omelette is done. Be careful while turning as it may break.
f. Repeat as long as the omelette pulp remains. Approximately 4 to 5 omelettes will be made from the amount mentioned.

Enjoy your rice omelette with any sauce of your choice. Happy cooking.
