I can’t put enough stress on the importance of breakfast. It is perhaps one of the most ignored meals for many of us. Having spent my college years perpetually ignoring this first meal of the day, I only realized its significance once I started working. A delightful breakfast cheers you up and keeps you from feeling grumpy throughout the day. For me, a light, fluffy omelette has become synonymous with a hearty breakfast.

Being the sleep aficionado that I am, a fancy breakfast is almost never on the card. It often becomes challenging to innovate and invent new recipes, so that my breakfast doesn’t become redundant. Perhaps, that is why my go-to option is a filling and nourishing omelette. The thing I love most about an omelette is that you can do so much with it. You can stuff your omelette with cheese and veggies. Or you can toss it around with some fish sauce to make a lip-smacking Thai salad. The possibilities are endless.

My quest to find newer omelette recipes led me to a popular cooking channel on YouTube. It was here that I came across a recipe for the fluffiest omelette. Ever since I tried it, I have never looked for any other recipe. Without further ado, let me share this remarkable recipe with you.

How to make the fluffiest omelette?


  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Butter, for frying
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until pale and creamy.
  • Mix the whites and yolks and combine well. You should get a silky yellow batter.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet, add some butter and let it melt.
  • Pour the egg batter and let it cook for a few minutes. Do not disturb the omelette while it is cooking.
  • Add salt and pepper as per your taste. It is important to add salt at this stage and not before. Adding salt to the batter will make your omelette flat and less fluffy.
  • Cover and cook for a few more minutes, until the top is mildly stiff.
  • Transfer onto a serving plate and garnish with some freshly chopped spring onion.
  • Serve on the side of some buttered toast.
