Mint Leaves Omelette

This is one of my favourite egg dish. It is mint leaves omelette with hot chillie in it and drizzle with cooking wine all over the pancake omelette when it is ready to dish up ...Mmmm can you imagine how aromatic that is :p I just have to go to my pot of mint..pluck the mint leaves , chopped some hot chillies and garlic....whisk two omega eggs and that's it....saute the garlic and hot chillies till fragrant , add in the washed mint leaves and stir fry for a short while. Take out the mint leaves and mix together with the whisk eggs. Then pour the egg mixture back into the non-stick pan and cook it till the bottom side is lightly brown. Flip it over in half and keep flipping the omelette till both sides are cooked. Drizzle with cooking wine and dish up . Serve it hot with rice or this can be eaten as filling for savory sandwiches..... I love this so does Piggy gal. Now it is so convenient...I can cook this anytime when the craving is there. This dish is good for confinement ladies :))) The mint leaves helps to remove wind from the body . You can add julienned ginger. I used sesame oil to fry this omelette.
