Indian Masala Omlette

According to Wikipedia,” In cuisine, an omelette or omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs fried with butter or oil in a frying pan (without stirring as in scrambled egg). It is quite common for the omelette to be folded around a filling such as cheese, chives, vegetables, meat (often ham or bacon), or some combination of the above. Whole eggs or sometimes only egg whites are beaten with a small amount of milk, cream, or even water.”

Masala Omelette is another name for an Indian Omelette.

Indian omelets  are generally made with green chillies, dhania/ coriander leaves, and onions all chopped fine. A dash of turmeric and salt to taste is added to the eggs. Generally to make an omelette fluffy you beat the ingredients well add a tablespoon of room temperature milk per egg and your omelette will be fluffier.

An egg is extremely versatile you can make anything from  Fried Egg, Egg Curry, Bhuna Masala Egg Curry to  Devilled Eggs/Deviled Eggs/Eggs Mimosa,    Anda Bhurji Wraps/ Scrambled Eggs Wrap ~Indian style, Egg Chat, Kerala Malabar Style |Mutta Biryani| Egg Biryani.

  • Repeat with the balance ingredients.

Notes

To flip  an omelette without hassles you can use 2 methods.
  1. Use a lid with a heat proof handle and invert the pan on the lid after loosening the sides of the omelette.  The omelette will drop in the lid then gently ease it into the pan the uncooked side down.
  2. This is difficult but I love this method give the pan a sharp jerk. The omelette must jump out of the pan and then it turns over. Hold the pan steady under the falling omelette. A lot of practice and torn omelette later I still have troubles when I try this method.
