1

To make the filling, combine the pitted and chopped dates, syrup, water and chai spice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low heat and simmer, covered, until saucy, approx. 8-10 minutes.

2

Meanwhile, separate one of the eggs, putting the white in its own bowl. Combine the yolk with the other whole egg in a small bowl.

3

Add a pinch of sugar to the egg white and whisk it until it holds soft peaks.

4

Whisk the vanilla into the egg yolk mixture until fully combined. Gently fold the whipped white into the egg yolk mixture.

5

In a medium-sized non-stick frying pan, heat the butter over a medium to medium-low heat until it has melted and started to foam. Pour in the eggs.

6

Cook, without disturbing until the eggs are quite set and about ¾ of the way cooked through. Then, gently use a spatula to flip the omelette. Let it cook for 1 minute.

7

Top with a spoonful or two of the filling and fold the omelette over the filling. Transfer to a plate and top with more of the filling plus a dollop of double-cream yoghurt.
