How To Cook Tomato Omelette

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, pour half of the egg mixture onto the pan, spreading it evenly.

Step 3

Allow the omelette to cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until the edges start to set and the bottom turns golden brown. Gently flip the omelette using a spatula and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.

Transfer the cooked omelette to a serving plate and repeat the process with the remaining egg mixture to make another omelette.
