Ujaj Mudawwarat (Another Omelet)

So this one…is just a bit outside of my taste range.  I’m sure it was an excellent and enjoyable treat.  This dish is NOT your typical omelet.  More like a savory sweet for the cook to show off their skill.  Posting this as a “Hmmm…how creative/showing off do I really want to do here.”

Translation:

Take some eggs and spate the whites from the yolks. Add a little honey to the whites, beat them together, and add to them chopped rue, tarragon, mint and basil. Beat this mixture well, put it in a pot and light a fire underneath it until it sets and thickens. Sprinkle it with ta little cumin cassia, murrie and olive oil. Turn the egg white disc onto a platter and spread it on the egg yolk you have separated, sweetened with sugar and cooked until thickened and set. (al-Warraq’s, pp. 329)

June 2015 077I know this is a bit of a messy picture.  The omelet cooking in two parts was a bit of a messy project.  Try this once just to say you have.  This is a good learning experience with out taking to much time or to many costly ingredients.
