Masala omelette


Nothing like a spicy breakfast on such a cold, wet and windy morning, though this masala omelette is delicious at any time of day.

For one omelette you need:

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of olive oil

1/2 a green chilli, finely chopped

1 spring onion, finely chopped

1/2 a tomato, finely chopped

small handful of coriander leaves

1/2 a teaspoon of cumin seeds

1/3 of a teaspoon of turmeric

salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a small frying pan and add cumin seeds when hot.  When they start to brown add chilli, spring onion, tomato and coriander and fry for a few minutes until everything is lovely and mushy and browned.

Break eggs into a bowl and whisk gently.  Add a bit of salt and pepper, and the turmeric.  Tip in the fried mixture and stir gently, then pour it all back into the frying pan and cook on a low heat until the omelette starts to set.  Flip to cook both sides or place under a grill to set the top.

Serve with lots of crusty white bread; or wrap in a chapati or flatbread for an easy, healthy lunch.
