Egg omelette  

There are three different methods of making egg omelette.

Method 1

Ingredients:

Eggs 3
Onions 2 medium
Chilli powder 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder ½ teaspoon
Salt
Oil as necessary

Method:

Dice onions and fry them in little oil until they are soft.

In a dish break the eggs, add salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and beat well.

Add fried onions and mix.

In a frying pan, heat some oil and when hot, reduce heat to medium and pour this mixture and spread to even thickness.

When cooked on one side, gently cut into four and turn over each piece and cook further until done to suit your taste.

Remove each piece, drain and serve.

 

Method 2: Jeera omelette

Ingredients:

Eggs 3
Onions 2 medium
Jeera powder 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder ½ teaspoon
Salt
Oil - gingelly oil preferred

Method:

As before, fry diced onions until soft,

Beat eggs with jeera powder, turmeric powder and salt well and add fried onions and mix.

Fry this mixture as before.

The jeera flavour is different and the dish is not hot to taste.

Variation:

Add one teaspoon jeera powder and 1 teaspoon chilli powder and fry in any oil to give a hotter taste with jeera flavour.

 

Method 3:

Ingredients:

Eggs 3
Onions 2 medium
Green Chillies 5
Turmeric powder ½ teaspoon
Salt
Oil

Method:

Dice onions and temper in hot oil until soft, drain and set aside.

Chop Green chillies into smaller pieces.

Beat Eggs with turmeric powder and salt well, add fried onions and green chilli pieces and beat again.

In a hot flat frying pan, pour some oil and when hot, reduce the flame to medium and pour the egg mixture and spread to even thickness. When one side is cooked, cut into four pieces and turn over one by one and cook until done to suit your taste.

Note: If you use an egg beater to beat the eggs, the fired egg becomes soft and fluffy.
