Indonesian-Inspired Banana Omelette for Two

Indonesian-Inspired Banana Omelette for Two

By: Lee Holmes

This recipe reminds me of the breakfast street food I enjoyed every morning when I was teaching English across Indonesia. You can make a savoury version too with shallots, garlic, chilli and toasted shredded coconut. The sweet version also tastes sensational with in-season mango, chopped mint and toasted coconut.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp fresh nutmeg, grated
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup fresh mixed berries
  • 2 tbsp pistachio nut kernels
  • Rice-malt syrup, for drizzling
  • Handful mint leaves, toasted
  • Shredded coconut, to serve (optional)


  • In a small bowl, beat the eggs and add the cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds, vanilla and salt and stir to combine. Add the mashed banana and mix well.
  • Place the coconut oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan and cook until bottom is set.
  • Scatter over the berries and pistachios and continue cooking until top is firm.
  • Carefully remove from the pan and drizzle over the rice-malt syrup. Top with mint leaves and the shredded coconut, if using. Serve immediately.
