3. To remove the omelet from the pan, hold the pan over a plate. Slide one-third of the omelet onto the plate then gently fold the opposite side in the pan over the center part. Finally flip the omelet in the pan over the part on the plate. A perfectly shaped folded omelet is the result.


1. Beat the eggs, milk, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl until they are completely blended. Set aside.

2. Heat a non-stick omelet pan on a medium heat. When hot add the oil. Fry the tomato, onion, green chile and cilantro until tender, about 3 minutes. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Using a silicone spatula, stir the vegetables into the eggs until evenly distributed. As the egg cooks, tilt the pan for even cooking. Use the spatula to lift the omelet from the pan so it does not stick. Cook until the bottom of the omelet is golden brown.
