Is fluffy omelette the translation that best reflects the texture of a (((perfect;)))) custardy, lightly underdone omelette baveuse?

Check out this thread for other phrases that have been suggested to translate the Spanish tortilla de patatas poco cuajada.

    Thanks Swift, I don't think that was quite right, although it is quite fluffy. Nonetheless, I'd think of a 'fluffy' omelette more as one with the whites beaten separately until they're stiff, then folded in (still shouldn't be dry, @ForeverHis :eek: ). Thanks for the link - that was really helpful.

    Compared to the classic French omelette, fluffy omelettes are considered somewhat dry. They certainly aren't "baveuses." ;)
