Masala Omelette, cooked with onions, tomatoes, green chillies, turmeric powder and coriander leaves add a much-appreciated oomph to regular omelettes.
Are you into cooking? Since you are on this page I’ll take that a yes! Then you’ll know that sometimes the easiest recipes are the most difficult ones to execute.
If you have been to breakfast buffets at Indian restaurants you would have come across the popular masala omelettes. Masala omelette is a variant of the regular vegetable omelette with a hint of Indian spices. Sounds simple? It is simple only on paper! However, in practice, you’ll know that getting a good omelette is not always that easy. In many instances, you’ll be let down by the omelette which turns out to be a dud! Not anymore!
This recipe will help you cook a perfectly cooked, flavourful and healthy masala omelette.
We’ll use onions, tomatoes, green chillies, coriander leaves, turmeric powder, salt and a touch of ground pepper for the masala mix. This is then mixed with eggs and cooked in a pan lined with butter. You can use your creative freedom to modify the ingredients. You can add more spices to raise the masala quotient. If you want you could throw in more ingredients like mushrooms, bell peppers (capsicum) and curry leaves.
Tips for cooking the perfect omelette
Amount of salt you add makes all the difference. Ensure you don’t add more salt. That’ll ruin your omelette. You can always sprinkle a pinch of salt later if that’s required.
Do not overcook your omelette. They’ll go dry and lose flavour. You should switch off the flame while the omelette is still a little undercooked. It’ll cook to perfection even after you stop cooking.
And always, always serve your omelette hot. There is no joy in eating cold omelettes.
Enjoy with some toast and a cup of hot tea (or coffee). Go ahead and read the step-by-step recipe below. If you like omelettes (well, who doesn’t!) don’t forget to check out my spinach omelette recipe here.
