Omelet Curry

When those were 'DINK' days (if you are wondering, DINK = Duel Income No Kids), we used to have lot of time in Life, we don't know what to do after coming home on the weekdays or in the weekend, so we used to have gatherings, potlucks, poker nights etc with some of our friends. As this activity became quite usual, we even named our gang as 'Usual Suspects'...and Some Guys in this gang are passionate cooks ( now you know where this is leading to...), Sumit Ralli is one of that Kind, Sumit and Rashi are very nice to host these parties at their Villa and Sumit always cooks something unique for the potluck. And one day he made this Omelet curry, which was quite amusing to me, as I was hearing it for the first time. In this curry, the omelet sits in the gravy of tomatoes cooked with spices. The soaked omelet tastes little tangy, spicy and omelety...it's definitely quite a unique flavor... if you haven't tasted this before, you got to try this... Here is the recipe for you, Enjoy!

 p.s: I just remembered this recipe, as i was going through the memory lane of those Duet days and realized I have never tried this recipe, so tried and tested now. :-)

Recipe Source: Sumit's Kitchen
For Omelet:
Eggs - 3
salt - 1 tsp
red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
black pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp

For Curry:
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 medium
Green Chili - 2
Tomato - 3
Ginger Garlic Paste -  2 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
milk -1/4 cup
cilantro - 1 Tbsp
Lime - 1/2
Oil - 1 Tbsp


Preparatory Steps:
First you have to make omelet for this curry. Break the eggs into a medium bowl. Whisk together all the ingredients under Omelet section. Heat the Oil in Omelet Pan and pour the egg mixture once the oil is hot. Let the egg cook becomes firm, turn it and let the other side cook well. For this the Omelet has to be with thick consistency. I have medium size pan to cook the omelet. Cut the Omelet into your desired shape, rectangle or square. I just prefer like 1 inch width stick size.

Now Let's Make the Curry:
  1. Heat the oil in kadai or non stick deep dish pan. 
  2. Once the oil is hot, add cumin seeds, followed by chopped green chili, onion. As the onion separates from oil, add ginger garlic paste and mix it well. Add some salt and let it cook on medium for 1 min.
  3. Now add the chopped tomatoes to the pan, mix it well and close the lid and let it simmer. ( for 3 min)
  4. Add 2 Tbsp water, Red chili powder, Coriander powder to the pan and let it cook for another 3 min. 
  5. Now add milk and mix it well, close the lid and let it cook for 5 min on medium heat.
  6. Now the curry becomes together and comes as thick and creamy consistency. Add cilantro and mix it very well. Now add the Omelet Pieces to the gravy and squeeze the fresh lime juice on top and switch off the stove...

Yum Yum Omelet Curry is ready now... you can eat this with Rice or Roti. If you want to eat with Roti, use less spice as this curry will be spicy. I have served this over hot white rice for VJ, and he enjoyed every bit of it....!
