Masala Omelette

Masala omelette is the most famous omelette recipes in India. Beat the eggs till frothy. Add the ingredients (green chilies, capsicum, tomatoes, black pepper powder, turmeric powder and a few coriander leaves) except the oil and whisk well. Drizzle oil in a pan, allow it to heat up. Cook on low flame till the sides are cooked and the underside starts to appear brown. Slowly flip over and cook the other side. Slide the omelette onto a plate and serve with bread or buns.


Spinach and Potato Omelette

Cook the potatoes in a pot of boiling water for 7-8 minutes and steam the spinach for 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and press the spinach to extract excess moisture and then chop. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the capsicum slices and fry over a moderate heat. Stir in the potatoes and spring onions and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Beat the eggs in a large bowl; season it with salt and pepper. Mix in the spinach. Take out half of the vegetables from the pan and add to the egg mixture just leaving the oil in the pan. Stir the egg and vegetables briefly to mix, then pour into the frying pan. Cover and cook, without stirring, for about 6 minutes or until the omelette is cooked but soft on top. Cook for a minute more and serve.
