Omelette Curry

This sounded interesting to me when I saw it in a menu.  Anyone who loves omelet in breakfast, this is a wonderful main course dish as well.  Probably it was invented in the hotel kitchens when there were quite a few Omelet left after the breakfast service..!!  Well doesn’t matter.   Let’s try it anyways.

Its again simple not so quick though, but definitely one pot – all eat Dish for tonight.

Ingredients for Masala

1 tbsp of whole cashews

2 medium onions

2 tomatoes (WHOLE)

a few Garlic pods (small 8)

 a little piece of Ginger

Whole spices (2 big bay leaves,2 big cardamom & 2 cloves, cinnamon, black pepper )

1/4 tsp Turmeric

½ tbsp red chilli powder

1 tsp coriander powder

Salt to taste

Method:

Boil Onion-tomato-garlic-ginger-cashews in little water for around 5 minutes.

Drain after 5 minutes. Wash tomatoes in cold water and peel.  Now grind all the ingredients together. To get a creamy base sauce

  • Heat oil, or preferably Ghee
  • Ground all the whole spices if possible, to give a creamy texture  (otherwise you can add all of them in the oil straight before the sauce)
  • In the sauce add all powdered spices.20180419_184337.jpg

    Keep stirring it
  • Keeping the flame low stir the paste continuously for another 8-10 min.
  • Paste will reduced to half in next ten min.
  • Once the paste is reduced to half it will get dry and will become thick.  You’ll notice fat gathering on the edges of the masala.20180419_190314

 

  • Add salt to taste
  • Now Add a Cup of water slowly. And mix well.  Simmer the sauce for another 3-4 minutes till you see a transparent thin red layer of fat floating, then our sauce is ready. 

Meanwhile when the Sauce is reducing, prep for an omelette.  I made a proper masala omelette with chopped onions, tomatoes, green chilli, coriander leaves.  You can try with a plain omelette too.

Once both are ready, place roundels of omelette on a serving tray and pour over the sauce.

And voila !! we are ready with the dish.  Serve with Chapati or Rice Pulav.

Enjoy!!!
