Recipe : Telur Bawang (Onion Omelette) in 6 easy steps

Telur bawang is probably the staple of all campers along with Yeo’s Curry Chicken. Who hasn’t eaten this onion omelette along with some canned curry chicken or sardine at least once during their school years when there is a student camp or something? But there are good omelette and so-so omelette. Let’s see if my method is the same as yours…

Knock three eggs and beat. Flavour with some pepper and soya sauce.

Heat some oil. Cut one onion. Brown the onions in the oil. Sprinkle some salt so that the onion taste good.

After the onion is browned, add any additional stuffs. I added prawns which have been given a little seasonings like pepper and soya sauce. Some green chillies will be nice too. Make sure prawns are cooked through.

Pour in beaten eggs gently so that the onions and stuffs remain scattered all over and not pushed to just one side.

Let the eggs brown on one side before attempting to turn it over.

And there, a perfectly browned and fragrant onion omelette! Which I fried with one hand whilst the other hand hold the camera. 🙂
