the best omelette i’ve eaten

my dad used to make one omelette a day for his uncle. a few days back, he shared the recipe. please dont expect anything fancy; no herbs and cheese and garlic. simple, with an indian touch of finely sliced green chilli and coriander. its the ultimate in calories; but good food is good food 🙂

You will need:

2 medium sized eggs
1/2 a tomato
1/2 an onion
2 green chillis (more or less, depending on how much spice you can handle)
a few good sprigs of some coriander
oil for frying
ghee (clarified butter)
salted butter
salt for taste


– put atleast 4 tablespoons of oil in a big pan. keep on low heat
– finely slice the onion and chillis. chop tomato. roll up coriander sprigs; chop very fine. keep aside
-break eggs in a big enough bowl, add the chopped stuff.
– beat for a few good minutes. omelettes need air to be beaten into them, which give them their unique texture. the eggs should have lightened in color.
– add a few drops of water to the frying pan. increase the heat to medium flame. if it sizzles that means the oil has reached 100 degrees and is ready for frying.
– now add salt to the eggs according to your taste. mix slightly.
– slowly pour the egg mixture in and move the pan about to ensure it spreads.
– wait till the bottom appears done
– lift half of the bottom, drop a teaspoon of ghee in the center. move the pan to ensure it spreads. now carefully flip the omelette.
– fry till the edges brown very slightly
– pat the omelette with some butter.
– slide onto a plate.
– tastes the best when eaten with white bread and ketchup and followed with a nice cup of tea.

This recipe took years to taste the way it tasted to me, but you can try anyway : ) om nom nomingly,
