Healthy Fluffy Puffy Omelette

Hmm... Tried this out just now... The omelette actually almost dissolved in my mouth... O.O Wow...


(per serving)

1 egg
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon water
1/4 teaspoon mirin
1 leveled dessertspoon olive oil or butter (if you want it to be more fragrant but more sinful...)

Other ingredients:
salt and pepper to taste (i didn't add though)

1. Separate the egg white and egg yolk. Beat the egg white until it forms a foam. Add in the cream of tartar and continue beating until stiff peaks are formed. (You can use mixer... But I beat by hand... Exercising.. LOL)

2. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit (about 170 degrees celsius).** I put this step here just in case your oven takes pretty long to preheat...

3. Add water, mirin and the egg yolk to the beaten egg white, and fold them in gently.

4. You can add in salt and pepper for taste at this point. Remember to mix in gently.

5. Over the stove using low or medium heat, heat the olive oil / melt butter in a small rectangular baking pan.

6. Pour the egg mixture into the pan into the hot oil and cook it for about 3 minutes or until the underside has turned golden brown. (I heated it for too short a time, hence ending up with the underside that's only golden.. =\)

7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the top has turned golden and the top springs back when tapped with finger. Run a teaspoon or spatula or butter knife etc around the sides to loosen the omelette from the baking pan. Place (or PLOP... Well.. that's what happens whenever I turn the baking pan upside down to get the contents inside out...) the omelette on a plate. Serve.

8. Enjoy!
