Mint Leaves Omelette

Mint plants are sprouting everywhere in my dad’s backyard garden and especially if it rains the whole week, they flourishes like nobody business :) Makes it so convenient for me whenever I feel like eating mint leaves omelette , I just jump over the fence and harvest as much as I can as required to make an omelette ! And recently I found that I could use the mint leaves for making mint chocolate ice cream....haha sounds wonderful, isn't it (",)

This omelette is easy to prepare and lotz of goodness in it and grandma told us that it removes wind from our body and has a lot of medicinal values to it.

Mint Leaves Omelette

Heat up some sesame oil in a non-stick pan, add in the julienne ginger , chopped garlic , chilli padi till fragrant. Add in the washed and drained dry mint leaves. Fry a minute, take out all the ingredients and put into the egg mixture. Stir and mixed well. Then pour the mixture into the non-stick pan till it is cooked properly.
