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 tablespoon finely chopped onions, 1 tablespoon finely chopped tomatoes (seeds removed), 1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper, ½ teaspoon finely chopped green chili pepper, 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro, ⅛ teaspoon turmeric powder, ¼ teaspoon red chili powder, 2 tablespoon milk, and salt to taste to the bowl and whisk well.
Heat an 8-inch non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon ghee to the pan and swirl the pan to coat it all over with ghee. 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 and browned. It will take 2-3 minutes.
Flip the omelette using a flat spatula and cook from the other side as well. Flip again and fold it into half. Serve hot with buttered toast and tomato ketchup.
