Tarachta is a delicious omelet based on an old recipe on the island of Santorini. The difference between this omelet and an ordinary one is the separation of the yolk from the egg white. The yolk is beaten separately from the egg white, together with milk, pepper, salt and parsley. The egg whites are then whipped and added to the yolk mixture. After cooking, the omelet can be sprinkled with spicy grated cheese.

On Kythnos, it is the name of a local dish, to which zucchini and potatoes are added.
