French Omelet - in Pakistani manner

If you are reading this post it means you have an interest in cooking and if you have teeny bit of interest in cooking you must have made an omelet. I personally prefer my omelet country style. With milk and brown at the bottom. So what is so Pakistani about it?

Its the onions and coriander. Khagina, a Pakistani omelet has all these ingredients: eggs, onions and coriander. What's different here is the cheese filling, creamy center and smaller curds.

The basic ingredients of a real french omelet are chervil, tarragon, chives and Italian parsley but for the Pakistani style 'French' omelet you will need just four simple ingredients; Eggs, onion, coriander and cheese. And salt and pepper for seasoning.

It's best to start with a three egg omelet that you make for yourself. If two are eating, then make two separate omelets, one after the other. Don't make one giant omelette, then split it in two.
In a pan melt butter and pour in the eggs. Let the eggs sit for 6-8 seconds then start scrambling vigorously with a fork. At the midway point when the eggs are still creamy flatten it in the pan and fold it inward. Quickly add grated cheese and fold inward again. 

Pakistani style 'French' omelet is ready!
