    Noo's Note:

    This recipe comes courtesy of the domestic goddess herself Nigella Lawson. A beautifully flavoured flat omelet that can be eaten any time of day as a snack or light meal. We especially like it in crusty rolls/French stick as a hot sandwich, but would be great rolled up in a chapatti or just eaten flat on a plate.

      I loved the flavour, the convenience and the excellent nutrition of this recipe, but I have to admit that even though I read the list of ingredients it did not occur to me that the eggs would be brown. My husband was suspicious of eating something so unfamiliar, but I gently reassured him that he enjoys Indian food, and that he would find this omelette delicious, which fortunately, he did. If I had been thinking, I would have served it to him for the first time disguised, rolled up in a chapati as suggested in the intro , and others with children (or husbands) who are not food adventurous might consider doing the same. Eating it, of course, will win them over.

      You need to have more eggs for the amount of spices. And start the onion and spices cooking on very low heat so they don't burn. Based on the ingredients I thought this would be amazing. But it was ok.

      Wonderful earthy flavor! I'm glad I bought fresh ground turmeric and ground coriander; I think it made a world of difference. (Spices keep 6 months in the refrigerator. If over a year old, they can deflate your enjoyment of the recipe.) I used one jalapeno pepper. This was very mild. I used jumbo eggs, and did not stir the eggs while cooking, instead flashing the pan under a very hot broiler as recommended. My eggs then still showed a lot of yellow, and I liked the pockets of spices. I used safflower oil and would use it or grapeseed oil next time; I like the "clean" taste. This goes to my Best of 2013 cookbook. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
