Separate eggs. add 2 tsp of water to egg white and beat till stiff. Fold in yolks, add salt and pepper .
Heat the same pan with the remaining fat over a low fire.
Pour two-thirds of egg mixture and tilt pan with hand, so that mixture spreads all over pan in a circle.
While egg is setting, arrange vegetable mixture on top, then the fried meat and ham.
Sprinkle grated cheese. Pour remaining egg over filling. When top is set, use a spatula and slide onto a large flat plate.
Cut into four wedges and serve immediately.
N.B : A spanish omelette is versatile enough to have any kind of filling, like leftover vegetables, meat or fish.
To make it a party fare, add boiled peas, mushrooms and olives.
Use either garlic or celery salt, worcestershire, tabasco or chilli sauce to enhance the flavour.
A handful of broken cashewnuts and a garnish of chopped fresh coriander leaves add to the appeal.
