Ginger Omelette is one of my favourite home cooked dish. I enjoyed this dish during my confinement month where I had to consume lots of ginger. Check here for the property of ginger.
The aroma of ginger and sesame oil make this dish very appetizing.
- 4 eggs
- 1 big nob of ginger, approximately 3 inches or more
- a dash of soy sauce
- a dash of white pepper powder
- a tablespoon of sesame oil and a little cooking oil
You may substitute the ginger with caramelized onions or chopped salted radish for other Chinese style omelette.

Does ginger really help after you’ve had a baby? My friend just had a baby boy yesterday afternoon and I’m putting together a package for her to take care of herself.
Eating lots of eggs during confinement month is a traditional chinese way. I have no idea about ginger. Anyway it helps to cook eggs.
I love ginger but I never thought of adding them onto eggs.
Fantastic idea! Ginger omelette sounds like good noshing any day, baby or no baby. 😉
I understand ginger is believed to help healing and rid body of ‘tok’ (poison) after birth. Chinese seem to perceive the after-birth and blood as poisonous and needs to be gotten rid of ASAP. There is of course good rationale to stop bleeding and to assure that no part of the after-birth remains in the uterus.
There is however literature to suggest caution in use of ginger after birth if you are Chinese and breast feeding. Ginger does get into the milk. It can cause jaundice in the newborn if he/she has G6PD (Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase) deficiency, a fairly common condition among Chinese.
Regarding omelets, I learnt that adding a teaspoon of corn starch in a Teaspoon of water for every 2 eggs helps give the omelet a soft and ‘smooth’ center.
I enjoy reading stuff on this site.
Mistake in my last post. I meant Tablespoon of water and not teaspoon. Sorry.
