How to make Indian Omelette?
Break 2 eggs in a medium size mixing bowl. Whisk them well using a wire whisk or a fork.
Add 2 tbsp finely chopped onion, 1 tbsp finely chopped tomato (seeds removed), 1 tbsp finely chopped green capsicum, ½ tsp finely chopped green chili, 1 tbsp finely chopped coriander, ⅛ tsp turmeric powder, ¼ tsp red chili powder, 2 tbsp milk, and salt to taste to the bowl and whisk well.
Heat an 8-inch non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp ghee to the pan and spread it all over the pan. You can also make the omelette in oil but ghee gives it a very nice flavor.
Pour the egg mixture into the heated pan and swirl the pan to spread the eggs evenly. Cook on medium heat until the lower side is set. It will take 2-3 minutes.
Flip the omelette using a flat spatula and cook from the other side as well. Serve hot with buttered toast and tomato ketchup.
