Indian Style Omelette


I'm not a big omelette fan..not until I had a proper Indian omelette. It's delicious. There's thick slices of onion you can bite into, hot green peppers and perfect little cumin seeds that collapse with each bite- releasing even more depth of flavour. The beaten eggs are fluffy and seasoned with a whole crew of Indian spices. It's a very nice way to start your day and eats like a meal whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner. You can beef it up with par-boiled cubed potatoes too!

5 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 tablespoon thickly sliced jalapeno (or less if you're sensitive to heat)
1/2 a medium onion cut into thick slices (about 1/3 inch)
1/2 tablespoon roughly chopped coriander for garnish
salt and pepper to taste


Beat the eggs so they're big and fluffy (about 3 minutes).

Add the spices and whisk another minute longer. In a nonstick pan put enough olive oil or butter to LIGHTLY coat the bottom. Add the onion and cook for about 1 minute. Add the pepper and cumin seeds and cook another minute or so longer. You don't want the onion too soft- it should have some give and texture. Spread the ingredients evenly around the pan add pour the egg over it. Let it cook on low heat. Cover the eggs with a lid that's slightly ajar for 3-5 minutes (this will help cook the top). Flip over and cook another minute more. Garnish with coriander.
