Recipe by Noo
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.
Top Review by Sweet Baboo
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.
