  • ½ tsp cumin, coarsely ground
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp onion, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 green chili, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ tsp turmeric, ground
  • 1 tsp ghee or vegetable oil and butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place all ingredients, except ghee, in a bowl.
  2. Place an anti-adhesive, 10 inch pan on high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the ghee.
  3. Vigorously beat eggs and vegetables for 15 seconds. Pour the blend into the pan. Mix using a spatula for a few seconds to seize the eggs. Spread the ingredients evenly in the pan to make the omelet.
  4. Using your hand sprinkle a few drops of water on the sides of the pan to create steam. Cover immediately for 1 or 2 minutes, or until the omelet is cooked to your taste.
  5. Serve with chutney or lime wedges.
