A simple Chinese scallion omelette with Maggi seasoning and topped with oyster sauce.


  • 6 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning
  • 3 green onions (sliced on the bias)
  • 1/4 cup carrots (grated)
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • salt and ground white pepper
  • oyster sauce, sambal oelek or sriracha sauce (for dipping)


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, Maggi seasoning, green onions, carrots and bean sprouts. Season with a little salt and white pepper and set aside.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat, add oil and swirl to coat the pan evenly. Add egg and vegetable mixture and swirl to spread the mixture evenly. Cook for 3 minutes and lift the omelette as you tilt the pan, to let the uncooked mixture flow underneath, as evenly as possible.
  3. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until omelette is cooked through.
  4. Turn the heat off, transfer to a plate and top with a little oyster sauce, sambal oelek and/or sriracha sauce.
