Masala Omelette

Masala Omelette
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 small tomatoes, deseeded and cut into small pieces
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Small handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • Handful of grated cheddar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the red onion, pepper, garlic and chilli, fry for several minutes, add the curry powder and garam masala, stir through the vegetables and fry for a further couple of minutes.  Add a few grinds of freshly ground pepper and a pinch of salt to the beaten eggs and pour into the frying pan.  Cook the omelette mix for 5 minutes or so until the mixture starts to set, top with the cheese and tomatoes and cook for a further couple of minutes or so until the cheese starts to melt, sprinkle over the coriander and serve.

Having recently visited India one of our favourite breakfasts was the masala omelette, so now we are home I thought I would recreate it and boy am I glad I did, even if I do say so myself, my version has a lot more flavour, go figure!  As with any heat based recipe you can modify the chilli level to suit your tastebuds.  A quick, easy and oh so tasty recipe, hope you enjoy as much as we did.
