How To Make Fluffy Omelette?
Here are some tips for making a fluffy omelette:
- Use fresh eggs. Fresh eggs have more moisture, which will help your omelette stay fluffy.
- Beat the eggs well. Use a whisk or a fork to vigorously beat the eggs until the whites and yolks are completely blended.
- Add a little milk or cream. Adding a small amount of milk or cream to the eggs can help make the omelette lighter and fluffier.
- Don't overbeat the eggs. While it's important to beat the eggs well, overbeating them can cause the omelette to become tough and rubbery.
- Cook on low heat. Cook the omelette on low heat to prevent it from cooking too quickly, becoming dry and tough.
- Use a non-stick pan. A non-stick pan will help the omelette cook evenly and prevent it from sticking, making it easier to fold and flip.
- Add the filling after the eggs begin to set. Wait until the eggs have begun to set before adding any fillings. Otherwise, adding filling too soon makes the omelette heavy and difficult to fold.
