Dosanko Cooking – Easy Potato & Onion Omelette




Stir to fluff up omelette


Potato & Onion Omelette

Dear friends,

Last week, I watched Mrs Hoshizawa cooked a really simple recipe on Dosanko Cooking, which is a Japanese TV cooking programme that is aired daily and features Hokkaido homecooking. Anyone, even children, can cook this dish, which makes use of potatoes, onions, and eggs to make an omelette. I was amazed that with such simple ingredients, the taste was really good and my kids who loved potatoes in any dish went crazy over this omelette, too. :lol:

Ingredients (serves 6) –

6 eggs

2 small (or 1 large) potatoes

1 large onion

1 tbsp chopped parsley

Salt & Pepper to taste

Method –

1) Cut peeled potatoes and onions into 1-cm or 1/2-inch cubes, to ensure even cooking.

2) Beat eggs with parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl.

3) Heat up a little oil and fry potatoes, stirring often until cooked. Remove potatoes put in a sieve to drain excess oil.

4) Leaving 2 tbsps of oil in pan, stirfry onions for about 2 minutes.

5) Put onions and cooked potatoes into the eggs in the bowl. Stir to mix well.

6) Put 2 tbsps of oil into pan, and pour the egg mixture into the pan.

7) Stir with chopsticks or a spatula to fluff up the omelette. When half done, cover pan with a lid or a flat plate and flip omelette into it. Slide the omelette back into the pan to cook the other side for about 2 minutes until done.

8 ) Serve bu cutting into pie wedges, and serve with hot cooked rice or as a tea time snack with tomato ketchup.

Bon Appetit! :D

        Hi again, what a small virtual world! I just saw the last part of this dish being prepared on tv and wanted to find the entire recipe cos it looks so fluffy and reached ur blog again :)
        Btw, my 2 month old enzyme mixture developed a layer of white bits but the mixture still smells ok. Have u come across this before?
        Thank u!

        Good to see you again, dear Jade! :D

        Hahaha…even in the virtual world, we can bump into each other, yes? :lol:

        Oh, this potato and onion omelette is still my children’s favourite – they love all types of omelettes, but when potatoes are added on, the taste is simply superb! Sometimes, I make a little sauce to pour over the omelette, using oyster sauce and Japanese Tsuyu. :wink:

        Yes, the enzymes can develop a whitish mould or whitish bits on the surface – it’s okay as it’s a sign of fermentation, and it is safe. Heheh, my cat likes to drink out of the pail where I mix some enzyme into half a pail of water and I use that to wipe my furniture. She never gets sick nor have diarrhoea and so, I know the cleaning enzymes are safe for cats’ consumption, too. :lol:

        Do have a wonderful day!

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        P.S. I still have a few episodes of Dosanko Cooking with very interesting, simple and yummy recipes recorded – I have yet to write down the recipes to post here. :oops:
