Nutty Egg Omelet

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,

As I told before, I am an eggatarian. I love to experiment with eggs and come out with new recipes. This one is
an accidental recipe, which is unique (I feel).
Last week, when we came from shopping in the night, we were tired and hungry. My hubby was hurrying to give him something fast. I had only chapattis. I opened the fridge to check, I had left with very little onion and tomato masala which I made for the morning breakfast with dosa. It was little to serve with chapattis. So what I did was, I beat two eggs and mixed with the masala and few other ingredients (written down). I was happy and surprised with the taste. Check it out. I am sure you will love it. Why it is Nutty omelet is I added crushed peanut and almonds in onion and tomato masala. When my husband started eating, he liked the nutty and crunchy taste. Don’t ask me, I did not get to eat only. Next time I had it full!
Here is the recipe,
For onion and tomato masala
Onion – 1 big (Chopped lengthwise)
Tomato – 1big (Chopped finely)
Curry leaves – 4 to
Chilly powder – 1 tbsp
Crushed peanut and almonds – ¼ cup (should be bigger in size or crush it to half)
(If you like add cashew nuts also)
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Jeera – ½ tsp
Salt to taste
Haldi -1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Hing – a pinch
Sugar – 1 tsp
Fresh coriander – 1 tbsp
Add mustard seeds and jeera in hot oil. Now add curry leaves, hing and onions with crushed nuts. Cook till brown, add tomato. Let it cook till oil separates. Add Chilly powder, salt, sugar and haldi. Add little water and boil it for five minutes. Mix with chopped fresh coriander.
Tomato and Onion masala is ready.
(There is separate
post for this recipe too!)
Now for the omelet,
Capsicum - half (chopped finely)
Salt as per taste (there is salt already in masala)
Eggs – 3
Oil – 2 tbsp (olive oil, optional)
Beat the eggs and add in to the masala. Add chopped capsicum and salt. Beat again.
Take thick bottomed pan. Add oil. (I always make omelet with olive oil). When it is hot, spread the beaten egg slowly. Cover it and cook for one minute. Open the lid and very slowly turn the omelet. Cover again and cook it till the omelet is cooked fully.
Serves two. You can eat just like that! When you get crunchy and nutty taste please remember me!!!
One more thing I always do with tomato and onion masala is, I boil 2 EGGS, cut in to pieces. Mix well and serve with chapattis to my daughter. She loves to eat, if I roll the same into chapati and give.
So there are 2 recipes for eggs here.
I am sending this recipe to Sudeshna's Announcing: Event for Eggs.

This omelet is going to participate in Divya's (Dil Se..)

Keep smiling,

I am sure it's gonna turn out to be great. I was scanning the net to look for some nutty idea when I came across this. I have some left over roasted nuts from last evening, so I am gonna try it for breakfast today.
