Indian Spiced Omelet

"This is one of the best omelets you get from vendors on the streets to have between bread slices with maybe some ketchup and green chutney applied to each slice. Have a bite of our street cuisine."

Ready In:




  • Heat the oil in frying pan (I use a non stick pan) and fry the onion, chilli, ginger, garlic until translucent.
  • Add turmeric and saute for a minute more.
  • Add the other spices and cook for a few minutes more stirring now and then.
  • Take them off the flame.
  • Beat the eggs lightly and add salt to taste.
  • Now add the cooked mix to the eggs.
  • Add the green leaves chopped, (cilantro and mint).
  • Now add it back to the pan which will have some grease in it.
  • Cook for a few minutes and then flip over after sprinkling some lemon drops on the first side.
  • You can also place this under a grill to do the second side.
  • This goes very well with chapatis/ rotis too.
  • N.
  • B.
  • You can add mushrooms/ carrots/ spinach/ tomatoes to the mix while it is cooking.

    I would agree with Chef #184530 that this needs more substance, especially for an omlette but it is quite tasty as is. I doubled the recipe and skipped the mint as my boyfriend cannot stand the taste of it in food. I would like to try it next time with some tomatoes. Part of the problem is likely us - we love your posted scrambled eggs recipe (recipe #82546) so much that nothing else really compares. I will make this again and just add some tomatoes and spinach next time. Thanks for posting!

    Excellent made this for our Sunday Brunch today and wow what a flavor sensation it is! I doubled the recipe and used 6 egg whites and one whole egg. I can not wait to try this with green chutney next time and I will be making this often. DH was crazy about it too. Thanks for the keeper.
