Can I Make a "Tornado Omelette”?

Updated: Mar 15, 2020

This "Tornado Omelette" Yummyboy YouTube video has 10+ million views! When it was recommended to me, I knew I had to try it!

A "Tornado Omelette" is a Korean street food where the chef twirls chopsticks in one hand and shakes/spins the pan in another hand to make eggs look like a tornado or mound over fried rice.

Here is the Yummyboy video. I used this video on Cookat's YouTube channel as a guide.

Attempt #1:

The tornado omelette is served over fried rice. So I made fried rice. Fried rice is easy to make & a good way to clean out your fridge; check out that post for more info. :)

I didn't make the sauce that comes with it. I just wanted to try out making the omelette part. :)

What I used:

- Fried Rice

- 4 eggs

- Oil

Equipment/Supplies: Chopsticks, non-stick pan, bowl (to make a mound of fried rice)

I suppose you could try to make a smaller "Tornado Omelette," (& use 2 or 3 eggs) but I thought it would actually be harder to try with less eggs because there would be less substance to work with.

I took my fried rice & put it in a bowl and then dumped it on a plate to make a mound on which to place my Tornado Omelette.

Then, I used my left-hand (dominant hand) and twirled chopsticks over the eggs and shook/spun the pan with my right hand. I put my attempt on YouTube. Haha! :) Check it out!


RESULT: Fail! :)

We are good at this? My "Tornado Omelette" has a hole and so it's more of a "Volcano Omelette". Haha! :) It still tasted good & it was super fun to try. I even practice the technique without eggs in the pan before trying. I'm going to try again sometime soon. Those chefs that make the "Tornado Omelettes" are super talented.

I highly suggest you give this a try. It's really fun! If you mess up, it's just scrambled eggs or an omelette. No biggie.

Give it a try! We are good at this!
