Masala Omelette recipe - a famous street food of Mumbai which is available at all corners, joints of mumbai even during wee hours of night.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 eggs (anda)
  • 1 small onion (kanda)
  • ½ inch ginger chopped finely (adrak)
  • 2 green chilies or red chilies (mirchi)
  • ¼ th cup coriander leaves (optional) kothmir
  • ½ t/s turmeric powder (haldi)
  • 2 t/s milk (optional)
  • salt as per taste
How to make the recipe?
  1. Break eggs into a big mixing bowl.
  2. Add turmeric powder along some salt.
  3. Give a nice whisk and beat the eggs about a minute with a fork or beater.
  4. Time to add milk and give a nice whisk again. By the way milk also helps in making omelettes fluffy.
  5. Now add chopped chilies, ginger, onion, coriander leaves if using, pepper powder. Combine all nicely.
  6. Take a frying pan add half tbsp oil plus some butter. Allow it to get hot.
  7. Now add half of mixture and place gas on high heat for 10 secs. Reduce the heat and allow the egg to cook on medium heat.
  8. You could cover your omelette at this point of time only for 45 secs.
  9. Check if it's done from one side , if not allow to cook more. I prefer my omelettes slightly brown and not yellow so cook it for some more time.
  10. Flip the omelette other side and cook uncovered. You could press the edges of omelette gently. Also you would notice your omelettes have nice and fluffy. Once cooked from both sides put the rest of oil. Allow to heat and pour rest of egg mixture for another omelette.
  11. Serve masala omelette hot with toasted bread or pav or roti.
Notes
1. You could use red chili flakes if you don't have fresh red chilies.
2. Ensure you don't place the gas on high heat else you would have burnt omelettes.
3. Adding milk is optional.
4. It's important to get your oil hot before adding the egg to make it fluffy.
