This scrambled eggs recipe takes Khanya back all the way to 1997! This cheesy egg scramble is best enjoyed with bread and lots of tomatoes. Keep it simple with Cheddar or Gouda or splurge and go for Gruyere.

8. Tornado omelette

This recipe has taken social media by storm (pun intended). It’s a popular South Korean street food that’s basically an omelette that’s been twirled using chopsticks while it’s still cooking to resemble a tornado. It’s silky smooth and can be served on rice dishes or enjoyed for breakfast.
