Other Crazy Ways to cook omelette!

There are a few more crazy ways to cook an omelette. You can use your rice cooker to prepare it. Yes, your rice cooker can cook your omelette in addition to rice or risotto!

Simply whisk the eggs and pour them into the rice cooker’s inner pot. Then combine all of the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. After selecting the slow cook setting for 30 minutes, you’re done!

Plus, you can make an omelette with the heat of the sun. Isn’t it crazy? But do you believe it’s possible?

Yes, it certainly is! The sun has been burning hot as if it intended to melt everyone on the planet. A woman from Telangana decided to show the rest of the world how severe the heat was in her state.

What exactly did she do? She did fry an egg on the ground. Apart from what the sun was throwing over, no extra heat was used for cooking the egg. She drops the egg mixture onto the hard floor, waits for it to fry, and then flips it.

The sad part is that temperatures in India have reached 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking an egg requires a temperature of 55 degrees Celsius.

The cooked egg was not tasted because the omelette was an experiment.

people also ask

Do you add milk to your omelet?

Don’t ever add milk to your egg mixture. Only water should be used. Since milk doesn’t mix well with eggs, it makes your omelet watery. The omelet stays fluffy and well-formed thanks to the mixture effects of the water.

Do omelettes need cheese?

People often fold the omelette around fillings like cheese, vegetables, mushrooms, chives, ham, bacon, onions, or a mixture of these. People often beat whole eggs or egg whites with a little milk, cream, or water.

How many eggs should I use for an omelette?

Depending on your appetite, make your omelette with two or three eggs. For a 2-egg omelette, you’ll need a pan no more than 8 inches in diameter, while a 3-egg omelette will require a pan no smaller than 9 inches.
